Welcome to the Faculty & Staff section of our website! Disability Services works in partnership with faculty and staff to ensure Seattle University’s access obligations; to provide students with disabilities an equal opportunity to participate in classes and activities. This goal is central to our Jesuit values of inclusion and social justice and is a fundamental dimension of human diversity.
DS supports students and faculty equally. We hope you find the following information and resources useful as you create a welcoming, inclusive, and accessible environment for your students.
myDS is the accommodation management system that is used by students, faculty, and the Disability Services Office.
Students use this system to:
Faculty receive system email notifications from Accessible Information Management of:
Faculty can submit their proctoring procedures (Alternative Testing Agreement) and upload exams through links in the emails.
Additionally, these same features are available to faculty in the myDS faculty portal. Using the faculty portal to manage student accommodations verses through email links will save time as information is centrally located. This is especially true for faculty who have multiple students with accommodations.
For review of the system functions, see the faculty video tutorials (located on the left side of this page).
