Confidentiality is extremely important in all matters pertaining to students with disabilities. Information regarding a student's disability is only shared with other university personnel if there is a legitimate reason to do so and with the student's written permission.
Faculty members are not told the specific nature of a student's disability, unless the student provides SSWD with written permission. Faculty may not identify students as having a disability nor disclose their accommodations without the student's written permission. Students are encouraged to communicate openly with faculty regarding their accommodations.
