University Guidelines regarding use of the non-discrimination policy statement
The full statement must appear in publications as required by the U.S. Department of Education. The Office of the General Counsel says that the statement should be included in any materials or publications that contain general information and are used to “recruit applicants, participants, beneficiaries, or employees.” Posters could be exempt if they include no “general information” beyond the announcement of an event.
As of October 21, 2009, the Statement reads:
Nondiscrimination Policy Statement

The University of Michigan is committed to a policy of equal opportunity for all persons and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, marital status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, religion, height, weight or veteran status in employment, educational programs and activities, and admissions.

Accessibility Statement Guidelines
Materials inviting attendance at events on campus or at campus-sponsored events off-campus should identify the office to be contacted to request accommodations for the disabled and specify a deadline one week prior to the event by which the contact should occur so arrangements can be made. When accommodations are requested, please contact the Institutional Equity Officer (593-5320) who will work with the sponsoring unit and Counseling and Support Services to provide what is required.
