Event Planning Guidelines

If it is certain that interpreters will be used during the program, include the pictorial symbol below in promotional and registration materials.

This will alert individuals who are deaf that this service will be provided. The following is suggested language to be used with this symbol:

  1. "Interpreting services will be provided upon request. Please contact (insert appropriate name/office and phone number) to request services." This language is recommended for events requiring pre-registration such as conferences, workshops or events with limited seating.

  2. "Interpreting services will be provided." This language is recommended for any special event on campus that is open to the student body and/or the general public and attendance of more than one hundred (100) is expected.

Provide seating for the individuals who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing in the front with an unobstructed view of the stage/speaker. This way they can take in the message and the message provider simultaneously.

You can use this "Interpreting Services Symbol" for brochures, fliers, etc.
