Campus Community Invited to Restroom Signage Focus Group
Students, faculty and staff are invited to participate in a focus group regarding restroom signage options on Wednesday, Feb. 1, from 4:30-5:30 p.m. in Room 304ABC in Schine Student Center,.
During the focus group, participants will be presented with the two options developed by Pentagram—an independent design consultancy hired by the University to evaluate campus signage—based on the suggestions and input from campus participants at the engagement session in October.
The focus group, which will be facilitated by the Maxwell School’s Program for the Advancement of Research on Conflict and Collaboration (PARCC), seeks to have participants assess the two options and provide feedback that will then inform and guide the development of the final design options. Campus community members will then have the opportunity to vote online for their preferred design.
“The Office of Campus Planning, Design and Construction, LGBT Resource Center and Office of Residence Life have been working closely together to guide this process, and appreciate all the students, faculty and staff who took part, and continue to take part, in shaping options that reflect our community’s commitment to inclusion,” says Joe Alfieri, director of the Office of Campus Planning, Design and Construction.
American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation and Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) will be available at the focus group. For questions about accessibility or to request additional accommodations, please contact the Equal Opportunity, Inclusion and Resolution Services (EOIRS) office at 315.443.4018.
Refreshments will be provided.
