At the University of Colorado Boulder, individuals with disabilities are entitled to access, support and reasonable accommodations.
Join Michael Roseberry, director of ADA Compliance in the Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance, for this month's Ethics and Compliance Brown Bag session on the subject of disability access for events.
Accommodation needs or requests can come into the university from a faculty or staff member as well as a visitor to our campus attending a meeting, conference or event. The ADA Compliance team serves as a resource by advising the campus on reasonable accommodations and working proactively to continually develop an accessible university through education and issue resolution.
In his Monday, April 24, presentation, Roseberry will provide a general overview of the current regulations and share how they relate to attendees at events on campus.
Attendees will gain valuable insight on current topics such as physical access, sign language interpreting, closed captioning, assisted listening devices and service animals. In addition, Roseberry will make available a practical checklist for how to assess a facility for accessibility in the planning stages of an event.
During the hour session, case study discussions will provide opportunities to dive deeper into the topics shared in the presentation. Ample time for audience question-and-answer will exist during and following the presentation.
Attendees are encouraged to arrive early to participate in networking and are welcome to bring a lunch. Light refreshments will be provided.
