The purpose of these procedures is to provide university divisions/departments with direction on how to ensure that reasonable accommodations are provided for any university sponsored non-instructional event.
Disabled Student Services will serve in a consultative capacity to assist in determining reasonable accommodation.
It is the responsibility of the event attendee with a disability to notify the campus sponsor in a timely manner which is at least seven working days prior the scheduled event. It is important to understand that some accommodations, such as the reproduction of material into alternate format or scheduling qualified sign language interpreters may require more notification than seven working days. However, every effort will be made to provide reasonable accommodations in a timely manner.
