David Galef, English Professor and Creative Writing Program Coordinator, recently published an OpEd in Inside Higher Ed titled, “How Accommodating Can (Should) I Be?”

In his piece, Dr. Galef spotlights an often overlooked and undiscussed element when implementing accommodations for students, which is the sustainability of such practices and the effects they have on the accommodators themselves.

“But giving in isn’t the same as accommodating,” says Galef.

With an enlightening redirection of focus, “How Accommodating Can (Should) I Be?” begs the question of to what extent do extreme accommodations pose as a mutual disservice to both student and professor.
