Syllabus Statement

It is the policy and practice of the University of Maryland, Baltimore to create inclusive learning environments.  If you are a student with a disability and believe you will need accommodations for this class, it is your responsibility to register with the Office of Educational Support and Disability Services (ESDS).  For more information, visit

To avoid any delay in the receipt of accommodations, students should contact ESDS as soon as possible. Please note that accommodations are not retroactive and that disability accommodations are not provided until an accommodation letter has been processed. 

Any students already registered with ESDS are welcome to contact me as soon as possible for assistance in developing a plan to address your needs and to coordinate the approved accommodations for this course.
