  • Accessibility

    All UF/IFAS materials should include an affirmative action statement, usually at the end of the publication, handbook, or other printed material. If you are unsure about including a statement, please contact IFAS Communications. There is no specific size requirement for this information, and it can be located anywhere on the publication. Below is the ADA statement for TREC personnel to include in any notice or flyer of an event taking place at the UF/IFAS TREC.

    [[ The University of Florida is committed to providing universal access to all of our events. For disability accommodations such as sign language interpreters and listening devices, please contact Monique Scoggin,, 305.217.9226 at least 1 week in advance. Advance notice is necessary to arrange for some accessibility needs. ]]
