Beginning this academic year, students will be responsible for delivering letters of accommodation to the faculty member teaching each of their courses. A student may email the letter or deliver a hard copy. We strongly encourage CSA students to email faculty and to meet in advance of the first class to discuss implementation of their academic adjustments. Faculty should make note of when they received the student’s letter. If you have questions, contact Kelly Cogar, senior director, at kelly.cogar@eku.edu or by phone.

Have you ever thought to yourself, “I assign this great reading, but when I ask the students to write about how they would apply the ideas, they seem confused?" This Quality Enhancement Plan-sponsored professional learning community (PLC) will provide tools to discuss academic purposes for including assignments that bring together reading and writing and will stress practical approaches for teaching students to read like writers. The Read/Write Connection PLC will ask whether our traditional writing assignments lead to a shallow understanding of disciplinary reading and whether emphasizing the intellectual processes of reading, including the role genre plays in understanding can better meet the learning goals we have for our students and their needs for success in their academic programs and careers.
