The Road to EIT Accessibility at Four Colleges: A Centralized Approach

In 2015, the Five College consortium in Western Massachusetts created a new shared position to better address the growing challenges associated with campus-wide Electronic and Information Technology (EIT) accessibility at four private colleges.

As the new EIT Accessibility Coordinator for Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke, and Smith Colleges, Rob Eveleigh has worked with the schools to develop and implement parallel and collaborative campus-wide EIT accessibility solutions.

In this webinar, Rob will share the successes, challenges, and lessons learned in the concurrent development of four EIT Accessibility programs across the colleges he coordinates.

This presentation will cover:

  • Developing individual and centralized goals for EIT accessibility across four colleges
  • Parallel and collaborative solutions for multi-campus college EIT accessibility programs
  • Strategies for getting administrative buy-in for accessibility
  • EIT Accessibility rubrics and guidelines
  • Lessons learned in the first year of a shared EIT Accessibility Coordinator position
