Session Length:
2 Hours
Room:
LSC 372
Description:
Ever see a student or visitor with an animal on campus? Ever see them inside your building, in a classroom, or in an office? Ever wonder why? Ever wonder if they can do that? Dogs, cats, iguanas, tarantulas, and other animals may have more of a place in the lives and lifestyles of our students than we may be aware. And the University may need to provide opportunities for these animals to be a more welcome part of student lives on-campus. The frequently evolving, and sometimes conflicting, guidelines that help define accommodations for students to have and use service & support animals have presented challenges to some colleges and universities. In our effort to remain open and evolving student access to an education here at CSU, this session will explore what those guidelines are and how CSU services have been working to respond. Representatives from Resources for Disabled Students, the Office of Policy Compliance, and Housing & Dining Services will share their perspectives and plans for supporting students through the process and, hopefully, finding a successful experience at CSU.
Goals and Target Audience:
To provide legal and procedural guidelines that could impact interactions with students/visitors within the campus community. Offer insights to observations staff may be making when they view students/visitors with service and/or support animals. Help staff address concerns they may have when working with students/visitors who have service and/or support animals Audience = All faculty and staff
