Guidelines for Animals on Campus

To continue a tradition of being an animal-friendly campus, a number of constituents on the DeLand and Gulfport campuses came together to develop and update a comprehensive animal policy for students, faculty, staff, vendors, and guests. The purpose of this policy is to create a safe, healthy, and inclusive campus for all members of our community taking into account campus culture and risk management concerns. Considering the essential functions of the university, applicable laws, and potential risks, this policy outlines expectations of animal access, health, and behavior. Within the policy, you will find guidelines for all animal owners on our campus along with specific information regarding the various types of animals including service animals, service animals in training, comfort/ emotional support animals, and pets.

The animal policy will officially take effect Spring term 2017. A copy of the policy may be found on the Policies page or in Stetson Connect under Human Resources.
