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 Campus Housing Accommodations: Trends for AY2015-2016 by
expert speaker Erin E. Dolly on Thursday, September 17, 2015 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.

In this 60 minute session, Erin will discuss:

* 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 Office for Civil Rights, the U.S. Department of
Education and the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division,
which states that all students, including transgenders and the ones
who don't conform to sex stereotypes, are protected under Title IX and
Title IV against 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 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?
