How can we create more accessible campus tours?

Printable Version

You can create a more accessible campus tour by incorporating the following suggestions into your tour plans:

  • Use descriptive language when conducting a tour.
  • Take wheelchair-accessible routes.
  • Be prepared to provide accommodations (e.g., sighted guides for visitors who are blind, interpreters or assistive listening devices for visitors who are deaf or hard of hearing).
  • Make sure printed materials are available in alternate formats.
  • When possible, post brief written descriptions at key sites, or have written "scripts" of the tour available.

For more information, consult the Student Services Conference Room.
