Accessibility Policy for College Events
Bryn Mawr College strives to provide equal access to all College-sponsored activities and events, whether in-person or virtual. When requested, reasonable accommodations for College events will be made in order to ensure equal access. Requests for reasonable accommodations at events might include:
- Preferential seating
- Sign language interpreters
- Alternative formats (e.g. large print, braille, electronic copies) of printed materials
- Program location moved to a more accessible space
- Assisted listening device
All Bryn Mawr College event advertisements (including, but not limited to, print publications such as brochures and flyers, website and email announcements/publications, and social media event pages) must include the following statement:
Bryn Mawr College welcomes the full participation of all individuals in all aspects of campus life. Should you wish to request a disability-related accommodation for this event, please contact the event sponsor/coordinator. Requests should be made as early as possible.
In addition, when event advertisements are posted online, they must be accessible, in accordance with the College’s Web Accessibility Guidelines.
Event advertising should also include information regarding accommodations that have been secured for an event. For example, “Computer Assisted Real-Time Translation (CART) services will be provided at Convocation.”
Should an event sponsor/coordinator need assistance in evaluating a request or in procuring services to provide an accommodation, please contact Access Services or the Assistive Technology Specialist for advice and/or consultation.
