Sale price$399.00


Support Institutional Objectives for an Inclusive Campus Environment While Establishing Reasonable Standards

More and more disabled college students are seeking to arrive at campuses with a variety of animals, from pets to Emotional Support Animals (ESAs) to Service Animals (SA). Given the ambiguity within these classifications, campus administrators are challenged to appropriately review and respond to requests while lacking clear understandings of just what is reasonable and how such determinations should be made.

Our expert presenter will draw from more than 20 years of experience as a Disability Resources Professional and independent consultant to offer practical insight into the requirements surrounding ESAs and Service Animals and identify necessary processes and key considerations for a successful campus animal policy. Protect your institution and support the access and inclusion needs of disabled students on your campus.

Explore some of the misunderstood aspects of considerations of ESAs, Psychiatric Services Animals, and Service Animals in Training (SAiT) and best practices for developing a collaborative process on your campus with the best interests of students and university stakeholders alike. 

Topics Covered

Gain crucial, actionable takeaways that will help you:

  • Appropriately develop policies and practices for animals on campus – Service Animals, Service Animals in Training, and Emotional Support Animals – and evaluate requests when presented by students.
  • Understand relevant federal requirements, OCR guidance and enforcement trends, and potential state issues surrounding animals on campus.
  • Better understand some often-overlooked aspects of ESA, SA, and SAiT processes and requirements.
  • Identify key campus stakeholders for engaging in collaborative policy development.
