LLCC Board Policy 1.26 allows service animals on campus. Service animals are trained to perform tasks for the benefit of a person with a disability in accordance with federal legislative mandates. It is important to never distract a service animal from their job by interacting with them. Remember that a disability may or may not be visible. LLCC may not insist on documentation or proof of state certification before allowing the service animal to accompany the person with a disability. In situations where it is not obvious that the dog is a service animal, staff may ask only two specific questions:
- Is the dog a service animal required because of a disability?
- What work or task has the dog been trained to perform?
Students with a service animal are encouraged (not required) to contact LLCC Accessibility Services. Questions or concerns about a service animal on campus can be directed to Kim Eddings at firstname.lastname@example.org.
