Creature Comforts: Nuanced Approaches to Animals on Campus Webinar

Presenters: Irene Bowen, ADA One and L. Scott Lissner, The Ohio State University

With the proliferation of information on service and emotional support animals, most of us know “the facts” of addressing the growing presence of animals on campus. However, when it comes to responding to unique student requests or supporting policy development, it can feel like being in maze of overlapping, and sometimes contradictory regulations, case law, and best practices.

If situational questions regarding service and assistance animals continue to challenge you, join us for this webinar that will revisit the basics and concentrate on the more nuanced issues involved in having animals on campus. Scenarios involving the various roles of animals (service, emotional Support, therapy, pet); species and zoonotic health threats, conflicts, animal behavior, training and venues around campus will be used to present a balanced approach that can consistently address new and unique situations. The presenters will address participant questions and focus their presentation on:

  • Determining the need
  • Limits on type of animal, size, training requirements
  • Roommate choice
  • Animal behavior and discipline
  • Where animals can go on campus
  • Allergies and conflicts with others
