For University Event Accommodations

Publicizing Events

Event organizers should place an accessibility notice statement on all materials announcing the event. This includes electronic communications such as e-mail, as well as print materials (e.g., banners, posters, flyers, brochures, “clings,” postcards, etc.) The text must include the name and contact information for the responsible individual, school, department, or other unit or group to contact for accommodations.

The following is an example of a statement that can be used in announcements for your event to ensure a contact is identified for individuals seeking accommodations or access to the event. Please refer to the UNC-Greensboro policy, for further guidelines regarding event accessibility.

Publicizing Event Statement:

“Please contact __________________ (event organizer) at ___________________ (phone and e-mail) at least one week prior to the event to request disability accommodations. All requests will be reviewed by event organizers and reasonable accommodations will be made. The requester will be notified of approved accommodations.”
