Instructors & Departments

At UMD, we view instructors and departments as crucial partners in our goal to promote an inclusive learning environment. Through collaborating with you, we aim to understand the unique dynamics of each classroom, course structure, and department, ensuring that accommodations are effectively implemented without altering the essence of the course.
