U-CAM: Differences Between Disability Resources and U-CAM
Disability Resources (DR) at Southern Oregon University provides academic accommodations for students with documented disabilities and acts as a resource to all of SOU in creating an inclusive and accessible learning environment. The level of service provided by DR is mandated by federal law and is available without charge to all qualified SOU students.
University Coaching & Academic Mentoring (U-CAM) is a comprehensive program for students with executive function challenges, ADD, and learning disabilities. U-CAM provides weekly coaching sessions, direct instruction in learning strategies and LD specific issues, mid-term progress reports, and student-driven workshops. Separate application to the program is required. There is an additional program fee for participation in U-CAM.
What if I don't have a documented disability? Can I still participate in U-CAM?
Yes! We know that many students, for a wide variety of reasons, often struggle with learning how to plan, prioritize, and complete their academic tasks. U-CAM coaches are experienced and creative guides who can help you identify problem areas and implement solutions, and encourage and support you along the way.
