The Accessibility and Disability Inclusion Initiative
The Accessibility and Disability Inclusion Initiative was established in Fall 2022 to foster a universal culture of inclusion and accessibility across the institution. The Accessibility and Disability Inclusion Initiative provides curated resources and technical assistance to faculty, students, and staff as they design accessible course content, programs, and events. Attendees will be individually permitted into the virtual meeting to maintain privacy and given 5 - 10 minutes. Contact the associated email address for each session if you require additional time to meet.
