Accessibility Checklist for Programs, Activities, Events and Services
St. Louis Community College is responsible for ensuring equal access to all of its programs, activities, events and services for persons with disabilities. This pertains to college-sponsored events off campus as well as on campus. All events must include an accommodations statement. Participants with disabilities requesting accommodations need to contact the event coordinator in a timely manner and requests must be reasonable. More detailed information is available in our Accessibility Checklist of Programs and Events. Questions regarding whether a request is reasonable can be discussed with the Access office staff.
While Access office staff may serve as consultants, the event coordinator is responsible for ensuring equal access. Most facilities within the college are accessible, but the off-campus sites may pose more of a challenge.
