Whom do I work with on campus to secure accessible venues for meetings and events?
Typically, counselors in a disabled student services office or campus Americans with Disabilities Act coordinators have the knowledge and expertise to assist with identifying the policies and procedures, as well as available campus resources, to ensure that students with disabilities have access to campus-sponsored events and meetings that are held on or off campus. Publicity for the event, brochures, websites, and all other forms of communication should include a statement about how to request accommodations, including the provision of alternate formats for documents and sign language interpreters.
For information on making campus events accessible, visit the Student Services Conference Room, or access the publication Equal Access: Universal Design of Conference Exhibits and Presentations.
