The KEY element that
makes up ALL the EXPECTATIONS
in the CODE OF CONDUCT is
Buddy, a lab-husky mix, is an emotional support animal (ESA). He is a dog that helps alleviate symptoms of an emotional or mental disability through companionship and affection.
This is different than a service animal, which is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of a particular disabled person.
Since Buddy is an ESA, he is meant to interact with others. The best part is that anyone can benefit from him. Research has shown that ESAs offer a boost in physical, social, cognitive, emotional and mental health. So, feel free to drop by or if you see him in the hall give Buddy a pet.
