Service Animals and Emotional Support Animals
This policy was created to support the university’s goal of providing a safe and welcoming place to learn and work, to support the university’s commitment to equal access for persons with disabilities, and to establish guidelines for the university regarding the use of Service Animals and Emotional Support Animals.
Executive Policy EP 1.207 – Executive Policy on Service Animals and Emotional Support Animals
DCAB has additional resources for Services Animals in places of public accommodation, and Assistance Animals in housing. You may also print your own Service Animal Card to provide to your department staff.
Are you teaching a class? Sponsoring a public event? Organizing a workshop? Leading a field trip? Responsible for a sports event?
All university programs and activities should be accessible to persons with disabilities. Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act states: “A public entity shall furnish appropriate auxiliary aids and services where necessary to afford an individual with a disability an equal opportunity to participate in, and enjoy the benefits of, a service, program, or activity conducted by a public entity.”
For information and guidance on program access, contact your campus ADA/504 Coordinator. Systems Programs and UH Mānoa departments can contact the EEO/AA Office at email@example.com or the KOKUA Program (student disability services).
You can also download the State of Hawaiʻi Programs and Services Manual For Persons with Disabilities. The manual covers customer service, auxiliary aids, sign language interpreters, facility access, service animals, registration forms, catering and banquet facilities, audio/visual presentations, safety and other elements of an accessible program.
All university programs have an obligation to ensure effective communication with persons with disabilities. This includes print media, audio media and electronic media such as the internet.
