The function of the Subcommittee on Specific Learning Disabilities, a subcommittee of the Educational Policy Committee, is to review and coordinate efforts relating to the issues of specific learning disabilities on campus, including the provision of equal educational opportunity through opportunity through accommodation to the disability and the evaluation of student petitions in consultation with appropriate deans.
The subcommittee consists of four or more faculty members from A&S&E, including one member of a department of modern foreign languages and one member of the Departments of Child Development, Occupational Therapy, Education or Psychology. Ex officio members without vote shall include the dean of academic advising and undergraduate studies or designee, the director of the Counseling Center, or designee, and the director of Disability Services. All voting-eligible faculty members are able to serve on this committee. Members are appointed to five-year terms.
Members of this committee will need to determine on a case-by-case basis if a student who submitted a petition is eligible, because of demonstrated learning disabilities, to substitute culture courses for the foreign language requirement (Part I). In addition, members may consider relevant options for the fulfillment of other foundation requirements, such as math.
The members are required to attend three to four meetings per semester, depending on the number of petitions submitted. The meetings generally last one and a half hours each. This committee is open to all full-time voting-eligible faculty members, including professors of the practice, lecturers, and senior lecturers.
