If you are planning to host an event at UC Merced, please consider that as a host, your department is required to provide accommodations to attendees so they can interact with others at your event *.
1. Please ensure that you leave contact information for attendees to request event accommodations.
2. You may also want to consider putting a standard accessibility statement on all publicity regarding the event, such as the following:
"UC Merced is committed to making its programs accessible to persons with disabilities. If you need an accommodation to participate in this event because of a disability, please contact 'name of event organized' at least two weeks prior to the program with information regarding the requested accommodation."
* Accommodation requests for public access or needs during campus sponsored events open to the public should be facilitated through the event coordinator responsible for coordinating the specific event.
For facility information related to building or public access, please contact: Certified Building Official David Gonzalves
