UO students had a lot to say about the accommodations offered by the university, including a cumbersome process and lack of meaningful and helpful supports.
One student writes, "Honestly I have ADHD with documentation and the Accessible Education Center (AEC) has totally been useless for me. Basically, they only can provide note-taking service or text-to-voice. Everything else is merely a suggestion from the AEC to the professor who has the ultimate say. For me, this has resulted in like no help."
Another student mentioned that getting documentation for accommodations is difficult, because AEC does not provide any assistance with that process. It's also a problem just getting an appointment with AEC. A student writes that, "I tried to make an appointment in September. Earliest appointment was December 12." On top of that, students don't start receiving their accommodations until the following term.
Another student said, "If participation/attending class are issues for your disability, UO really sucks with that." A few students mentioned that they tended to feel lost and confused in large lecture classes, and the professors were not supportive.
At least one student had positive things to say about U of O, including the strong culture of ethics on campus. "I’m not aware of any ethically dubious research taking place in my university. It seems like something my university would not participate in." Indeed, U of O is one of the few research institutions in the Association of American Universities that doesn't conduct experiments on animals.
