It is acknowledged that the campus, in great part, is made up of public spaces. For this reason it is often difficult to differentiate between the truly public areas and those spaces which are work spaces. Nevertheless the workplace is intended to be devoted to the efficient and effective delivery of education and related services to students, parents, and members of the community. In those workspaces, the presence of animals not devoted to accomplishing these objectives is disruptive, non-hygenic, and potentially unsafe.
It is the policy of Fredonia, that faculty and staff are prohibited from bringing personal pets or other animals into the workplace. The only exception to this policy applies to service animals (e.g., seeing eye dogs). This applies to all campus buildings and all state vehicles at all times.
