Making departments and programs more accessible for students with disabilities

LEAD: AccessComputing

Students with disabilities face challenges of stigma around disability, inaccessible tools and instruction, disability disclosure, and a lack of mentors. Meanwhile, organizational factors and faculty’s individual values and knowledge cause difficulty in the integration of accessibility topics within courses.

This working group will explore how to make computing courses more accessible. In addition, this working group will also discuss how best to deal with the rising mental health issues on campuses.
