Events: Planning and Hosting

Self Evaluation Work Plan


This section addresses planning and hosting accessible events. 


Familiarize your employees with the Event Planning guidance that is available on the Office of Disability Access & Compliance (DAC)  website, and work with DAC to develop a comprehensive Events Accessibility checklist. (
Ensure that all all event advertisements for events open to students and/or non-affiliates contain written notice that reasonable accommodations are available for persons with disabilities as needed and/or upon request, and that service dogs are welcome.
Work with the Office of Disability Access & Compliance website to offer training to relevant employees on how to ensure that event content is fully accessible (e.g. presentations, exhibits), as well as best practice guidelines for presenting content to persons with disabilities.   


Leads should take the training themselves, then assign it to those employees in their unit for whom they believe it is relevant. Assigning to all employees is recommended. Any processes, procedures or protocols recommended for development in the training should be created.
