Pet Policy for Area Coordinators

Pittsburg State University created our pet policy to enhance the quality of life for the Area Coordinator staff. Being fully immersed with the world of the students can sometimes require significant sacrifices in lifestyle. We recognize the ability of pets to aid their owners in the reduction of stress and the lowering of blood pressure. Perhaps more importantly, minimizing the lifestyle sacrifices of live-in professionals – in areas as precious to people as their pets – benefits not only the live-in professionals and their family units, but the University community as well.

The pet policy and agreement applies only to full-time, professional Area Coordinators living in apartments within the residence halls. As appropriate, Area

Coordinators are expected to be able to explain the pet policy rationale to students and/or parents.

Area Coordinators will be permitted to own, and have live in their apartment a limit of one cat or one dog. No other types of pets are allowed (with the exception of fish). The maximum size of any pet shall be 35 pounds and 18 inches at the shoulder.
