Roadmap for Improvement of Digital Accessibility in Higher Education


Digital accessibility is no longer a nice-to-have feature, but rather a must-have feature for students considering and/or enrolling at your college or university. Approximately 20% of undergraduate students have a diagnosed disability. The biggest problems these students face on campus not only include buildings that aren’t accommodating, but also digital resources that are not optimized. This webinar will provide the foundational information and tools to create a roadmap to improve digital accessibility at your institution.

Attendees will learn how to create a culture of accessibility and develop a roadmap for digital accessibility. Additionally, key learning outcomes will include: 

  • A better understanding of what it means to be digitally accessible
  • Clear guidance and update re: upcoming WCAG 2.2 standards release 
  • Insight into how the landscape has evolved for institutions of higher education and their students
  • An Overview of key gaps in digital accessibility
  • Recommendations, milestones, and metrics to guide efforts to improve digital accessibility
  • Take-away actionable guide and set of steps to start making improvements
