Training undergraduate and graduate students to think critically, rigorously debate ideas, and be guided by evidence are the hallmarks of a University of Chicago education. Our faculty, other academic appointees, and other instructors are critical partners in transmitting our academic values to students at every level and delivering a transformative education. The following are links to various resources around the University for both students and educators.
Assistance for Students with Disabilities
The University provides resources to students with disabilities to ensure they can fully participate in campus life.
Disability Assistance for Academics
Reasonable accommodation is available for faculty and other academic appointees with disabilities.
Religious Accommodations in Teaching
Instructors are required to provide accommodations for students who must miss class, assignments, or exams in observance of religious holidays.
Support for Instructors
Chicago Center for Teaching and Learning
The Chicago Center for Teaching and Learning supports the University’s diverse community of instructors in developing teaching practices to enhance student learning across campus.
Inclusive Pedagogy Website
Developed by the Chicago Center for Teaching and Learning in partnership with the Office of the Provost, this website serves as a resource for academics who are committed to inclusive teaching.
Teaching Remotely
The Teaching Remotely website is a resource hub with information on setting up and building remote and hybrid courses.
UChicago Certificates and Other Educational Offerings
To help ensure compliance with new federal guidelines overseen by the Higher Learning Commission, the University has developed a checklist for existing and new non-degree programs. The checklist is designed to facilitate program development and design, provide common definitions and nomenclature, help University units achieve desired learning outcomes, and obtain information the University needs to satisfy new accreditation requirements. For a copy of the checklist or more information, please contact Senior Associate Provost Ingrid Gould or Assistant Provost Beth Niestat.
