If students are encountering barriers for reasons unknown to you, consider presenting them with a list of resources, which may include:
- Disability Resources
- Tutoring Center
- Writers' Workshop
- Academic advisors
- UMD Counseling Services
- UMD Health Services
If a student approaches you and discloses that they have a disability, please refer them to our office. Students can contact us at 258 Kirby Student Center, by email at [email protected], and phone at 218-726-6130.
Examples of when to connect students with Disability Resources:
- Students who indicate their academic barriers are disability related.
- Students that are asking for disability accommodations but have no Letter of Accommodation (LOA).
- Students with consistent testing barriers such as always running out of time, often mis-reading test questions or are unable to maintain focus on the test.
- Students who report test anxiety.
