Strategic Campus Collaborations: Advancing Knowledge about Accessibility at the University of Arizona
Through a successful team-based, knowledge advancement approach the University of Arizona (UA) is working towards achieving full accessibility of all electronic and information technology to ensure equitable experiences for everyone.
The itAccessibility Team at UA focuses on the accessibility of the institution’s electronic environments with top-down and bottom-up approaches. Through actively participating in projects across campus to discuss and evaluate accessibility in IT and academic environments, their campus accessibility knowledge network continues to expand. The Team is routinely included in projects across campus to discuss and evaluate accessibility in IT and academic environments.
As a result, UA’s itAccessibility Team has successfully built accessibility into design processes of campus projects and courses to strategically impact access. They are currently involved with central IT programs and procurement solutions, individual department outreach, innovative and collaborative teaching, and the new UA Online degree programs.
This presentation will cover:
- The structure of the itAccessibility Team
- Networking opportunities realized through committees and work groups
- The impact achieved after the development of new campus initiatives
