Student Accessibility Services Note-Taking Program Fall 2019 Peer Volunteers
Student Accessibility Services thanks the students who served as peer notetakers during the fall 2018 semester. Peer notetakers are volunteers who have met standards of quality and excellence to assist us with ensuring equal access to education for students who receive the note-taking accommodation.
Peer notetaker duties extend beyond simply making copies of their notes. Notetakers make sure that their notes are tailored to suit the needs of the student(s) they support. This is not an easy task, for some of our students have very specific needs. Taking notes can involve rephrasing content, typing notes in a specific font, enlarging notes to a specific size, or meeting with the student receiving the notes to ensure that all notes are up to quality and accessibility standards.
The following students have displayed a high degree of integrity, responsibility, and care in making sure that the students they were supporting had the opportunity to succeed. Please join us in thanking them for helping us keep Buffalo State College a civil and caring academic community.
