Animal Policy -Animals, defined as domesticated pets, may be brought on campus under the following conditions:

  • The animal is part of a classroom demonstration that has been approved by faculty.  In such cases, the animal should be brought on campus immediately before the class and removed from campus immediately after class. The animal must be on a leash or in a carrying case when in transit.
  • The animal is a “service animal” as defined by current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and State of Indiana regulations. Under these laws, a “service animal” is defined as an animal that is specifically trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a physical, sensory, psychiatric/mental, or intellectual disability; and the work or tasks performed by the animal must be directly related to the individual's disability. Animals that only provide crime deterrent effects, emotional support, well-being, comfort, or companionship do not fall under the legal definition of “service animal.” The University reserves the right at any time to ask if the animal is required because of a disability and what specific work or task the animal has been trained to perform. The University also reserves the right to request that the animal be removed from the property if it does not meet the legal definition of service animal, if the handler fails to keep it under appropriate control, or if it is not housebroken. An animal meeting the complete and proper definition of “service animal” will otherwise be permitted anywhere on campus that is typically open to students and visitors.
  • With permission of the president or the president's designee.
  • Animals other than “service animals” may be exercised on exterior areas of campus as long as they are on a leash and are not taken to any areas where an active program or event is occurring.
  • In all cases it is the responsibility of the individual(s) bringing any animal to any University owned or controlled property to be aware of state and local immunization and licensing requirements, to fully comply with those requirements, and to assume any and all liability associated with failure to do so. Such individuals are responsible for cleaning up after their animal, for maintaining humane control of the animal at all times, and are financially responsible for any damage that the animal may cause to University property or injuries caused to other individuals.
