Faculty Advisory Committee

In order to serve as a liaison between our office and the faculty across campus, the AARC has appointed a faculty advisory committee. The AARC Faculty Advisory Committee ( AFAC) is composed of faculty representation from each of Valparaiso University’s professional colleges.  Faculty serving on this committee will provide guidance on the essential functions of their respective colleges and areas with respect to potential accommodations and practices being considered by the Access and Accommodations Resource Center. In addition, committee members will serve as liaisons between AARC staff and colleagues within their professional colleges.
