What is a service dog, exactly, and where can it go on campus? When can a student have an animal in the residence halls? The presence of dogs and other animals on our campus has steadily increased in recent years, and people have questions about what’s allowed and what to do when interacting with people who have animals. Come and learn about the differences between these types of animals under the law, and under CSU’s recently revised policy, and how people and animals can peacefully co-exist on our campus.
Goals and Target Audience:
Learning objectives include:
• Understand the difference between a service animal, a pet, and an emotional support or therapy animal
• Know the rules that apply to service dogs on campus
• Know what animals are allowed in the residence halls, and why
• Learn about the resources available to support the campus community’s need to accommodate individuals with disabilities who rely on these animals
Targeted Audience: Residence hall staff, building proctors, faculty, and anyone who wants to learn more about these animals and the responsibilities of their owners and the campus community.
