Developing an Assistance Animal Compliance Policy

Developing an Assistance Animal Compliance Policy

April 10, 2014 | 1:00 - 2:30 EST

After participating in this online training, you will be able to develop an assistance animal compliance policy for your institution.

Recent court decisions have ruled that university-owned housing is subject to the Fair Housing Act (FHA). In order to avoid legal liability and the cost of subsequent lawsuits, your institution must develop clear assistance-animal policies and procedures to provide appropriate accommodations for students. 

Join us online to learn how to develop an assistance animal compliance policy that is appropriate for your institution. With the help of our instructors’ institutional and legal expertise, you will learn the fundamentals of addressing individual requests for assistance animals through structured policies and procedures.

BRING YOUR STUDENT AFFAIRS TEAM

This online training is appropriate for higher education professionals responsible for approving and managing requests and accommodations for assistance animals, including: disability services, housing and residence life, student affairs leadership, facilities management, and legal counsel.

ADDITIONAL RESOURCES

Registration for this online training will include resources for you to refer to as you develop an assistance animal policy for your institution. These resources include:

  • Sample policy
  • Policy checklist
