After being diagnosed with a concussion in December and a recurring concussion in January, I suffer from intense migraines, intense light sensitivity, shorten attention span, and minimal concentration and require academic accomadations. I am currently relearning how to attend lectures, take notes, and study as I cannot continue the same way pre-concussion. I am no longer able to access PMC learning strategy services which I need to succeed in my classes.
In addition, as most of my courses use multimedia to teach, my classes have not been as enriching as they could have been. Thus, I am paying Carleton an egregious amount of money for subpar education and health services. The board of governers and the president should be absolutely ashamed. Your employees deserve and have the right to respect, dignity, and THEIR pensions.
