Ethics of Teaching and Disabilities

Featuring:  Eric J. Tucker, Ph.D.

St. Petersburg College recognizes the importance of encouraging and helping students with disabilities reach their full potential. In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the College ensures that admission, services, activities, facilities, and academic programs are accessible to and usable by qualified students with disabilities.

Reasonable accommodations are available to students who identify themselves as having a disability and as being otherwise qualified for admission to the College. Each student is responsible for providing documentation of his/her disability and requesting appropriate accommodations. The intent of reasonable accommodations is to provide all students with similar opportunities for success and for mastery of academic skills.
