Running the Event


Event planners have responsibility for providing access and support to participants or guests who have disabilities, per the Americans with Disabilities Act. Note that some MIT facilities are not fully accessible to persons with disabilities. Please review these issues with the office through which you are reserving space. Student Organizations should also budget accordingly to those events that will need interpreters, additional accommodations, etc. For more information contact Disability and Access Services (5-104, 617-253-1674). In compliance with the American with Disabilities Act and Massachusetts State Law, the sponsors will make reasonable accommodations to ensure program access. The following statement is an example of what should appear on all program announcement materials:

"If you need disability accommodations in order to participate in this event, please contact (name of person or organization planning the event with telephone and email of the person or organization named above) and indicate your need."
