Accessibility Group


The Accessibility Group is an ad-hoc working group reporting to the Executive Technology Steering Committee.


The Accessibility Group provides recommendations regarding:

  • Campus training needs related to accessibility;
  • The most concerning current uses of materials and technologies that are not yet accessible;
  • The available and needed resources for assisting faculty and staff in selecting accessible products and/or making materials and technologies accessible;
  • Workable standards for documenting alternative accommodation plans; and
  • Other actions that could be taken to insure that accessibility considerations become common business and educational practices.
