Service Animals in Post Secondary Education Settings

Tuesday, June 18, 2013


Recent revisions to the regulations implementing Title II and III of the ADA have put an increased focus on the issue of service animals in a variety of settings. Post secondary institutions face unique challenges around service animals when it comes to their policies and procedures in student housing, classroom spaces and public areas. This session will explore the different scenarios that often play out in post secondary education and discuss the interplay between laws governing non-discrimination in housing versus equal access to programs and services. Join this panel of presenters for a discussion of the issues and engage with them in an interactive question and answer period.
