    Accessibility

    We are committed to providing a meaningful and accessible experience for everyone who attends the symposium. If you would like to request a specific accommodation, please contact the symposium organizers at watzek@lclark.edu and we will do our best to make the necessary arrangements. Unfortunately, many spaces at Lewis & Clark College are not fully accessible, particularly by wheelchair. If you contact us in advance, we can work with you more fully.

    Symposium events are primarily scheduled in Templeton Campus Center and the Agnes Flanagan Chapel/Diane Gregg Pavilion.  Both buildings have bathrooms that are not gender specific. For details, please consult this campus map identifying locations of non-gender-specific bathrooms

    We ask that symposium participants remain fragrance free as much as possible so the symposium can remain an accessible space for people with chemical sensitivities.

    We are sorry that we are unable to provide childcare during the symposium.
