Learn More about Accessibility
Are you creating electronic documents, digital course content, or website materials? You will need to incorporate elements into your materials to make them accessible to individuals with disabilities, including (but not limited to) people with hearing, mobility, cognitive or visual impairments.
Included on this page are resources to learn more about accessibility either through online learning or in-person workshops.

"While the ultimate goal is to create a culture where inclusive and universal design is completely proactive, it is necessary to first make sure that any content that already exists is accessible to everyone, be it faculty, staff, students, or the public. The remediation process allows us to take inventory of what we have and complete any changes necessary to make our environment an inclusive one."
