Planning Your Event

Planning an accessible event

As the event planner, it is your responsibility to plan for and provide required services for people with disabilities. It is important to consider the accessibility of your program to presenters, participants and guests with physical, sensory and hidden disabilities and to anticipate the possibility of providing auxiliary communication aids and services such as assistive listening devices, alternative print materials, sign language interpretation, captioning, accessible food service, and other accommodations. All promotional materials should include both a phone number and email contact information for people with questions or special requests. The College is committed to facilitating the participation of people with disabilities in all of its programs and events. Conferences & Special Events and the 504/ADA Coordinator in the Office of Institutional Diversity & Equity can assist.
