What You Can Do
Accessibility is everyone's everyday work. Whatever roles you play—faculty, staff, student, and more—you can help create a more inclusive University. Make a commitment to start small, and continue learning and practicing.
- Start with the 7 Core Skills No matter your role at the University, you can cultivate a more inclusive, accessible, and equitable community for everyone. We encourage you to start small and learn one of the 7 core skills.
- Extend the Core Skills Once you have learned the core skills, keep learning and practicing even more skills so you can design inclusive courses, create accessible content in different formats, host accessible events, and develop accessible websites.
- Plan for Accessibility Consider accessibility as you begin every project. Even if you have limited time, take on just one aspect now, and tackle others later. That way you may not have to retrofit materials upon request, which can take more time, resources, and money.
- Purchase Accessible Technologies If you are purchasing a technology for use at the University, evaluate the extent to which a product meets University accessibility policies and national accessibility laws. Learn what questions to ask as part of your decision-making process.
- Test for Accessibility The accessibility of digital content can be evaluated by performing both software-assisted and manual checks to identify issues. Perform a check any time during your content's creation and whenever you add additional content or features.
- Promote Digital Accessibility Build awareness and practice skills with the Cultivate Inclusion Challenge!
