Extended Abstract

This open dialogue, not a presentation session, aims to help everyone, not only learn more about accessibility best practices but how we can all learn from another. Accessibility is a growing trend and hot button topic today in higher education. With the number of lawsuits that are happening all across the nation, the need for creating accessible materials and websites is now. Let's use this session to learn from one another and how individuals are combating accessibility needs on their campus or organization.
