Strategies to Ensure Best Practices and Legal Compliance in Dealing with Student Accommodation Requests at Your Institution

Unique issues and challenges have cropped up due to increasing requests faced by colleges and universities for on-campus housing accommodations. In an area where determinations are made on a "reasonableness" standard, and in which the laws and societal expectations are constantly evolving, administrators and staff must determine both what is legally required and what constitutes best practices for accommodating a range of individuals on campus.

This session by expert speaker Erin E. Dolly will prepare you to address the range of student accommodation requests that are taking place across the country and at your own institution. It will discuss the range of accommodation requests and types of students seeking accommodations and will walk through how best to field such requests to make sure that your institution is both legally compliant and keeping up with best practices.

Session Highlights:

  • The legal framework of reasonable and other accommodations in the context of on-campus housing
  • Trans and non-binary students (dorm rooms and rest rooms)
  • Service and companion animals
  • Mental health as a disability (including suicidal students)
  • Behavioral disabilities

Session Agenda:

  • The impact of the determination by the Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights and the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division that all students, including transgender students and students who don't confirm to sex stereotypes, are protected under Title IX and Title IV from sex based discrimination, particularly for religious and/or colleges and universities that require students to share housing with members of their assigned birth sex.
  • Is there a trend in limiting the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) and America with Disabilities Act (ADA) definitions of disability attributed to behavioral disorders?
  • How does the Department of Justice's July 2015 FAQs on how the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) apply to service animals impact how campuses should address this issue?
  • How can institutions best handle students at risk for self-harm – balancing the needs of the student, the limitations of the community, and legal liability which may be possible?
