Drafting Emergency Protocols for People with Disabilities at Bucknell University

Feedback form is now closed.
    Students with  disabilities overcome many challenges every day that those without  disabilities do not see. One such challenge is the effort to reach  classrooms, lectures, meals, and practices. Though Bucknell has made a  commitment to physical accessibility, one area that the University needs  improvement in is emergency accommodations for members of the Bucknell  community that live with disabilities. The University lacks a procedural  protocol for emergency situations for people with disabilities; this project  aims to implement such a plan in Bucknell’s upcoming emergency procedures  publication. The authors perform research on other universities’ emergency  protocols for people with disabilities, work in combination with the Office  of Accessibility Resources and the Office of Public Safety and the General  Counsel to understand considerations for drafting a new plan, and then submit  a draft emergency protocol for people with disabilities to the Office of  Accessibility Resources and the General Counsel. The draft’s exact usage is  yet to be determined, though it is expected that the plan will be folded into  the Office of Public Safety’s preexisting University-wide policy that is  expected to be implemented following its approval from the General Counsel.
