Accessible Course Materials and Technology

Faculty play a special role in ensuring accessibility.  As instructors, faculty share responsibility for providing students with disabilities equal access to educational opportunities.  As providers of community services and programs (such as organizing conferences, lecture series, performances, or other events) faculty are responsible for providing reasonable accommodation to any participant with a disability, including visitors and community members.
