Accessibility Committee Progress Report
The Accessibility Committee was formed in 2019 and consists of various members and stakeholders across the university. View the Committee Members and learn more about our Strategic Goals. This website was created to keep the Fordham community updates on progress and accomplishments to help make the university a fully accessible institution.
To focus on specific areas of need, we created subcommittees to work in smaller groups:
- Academia (Faculty/Ed)
- Web and Resource access
- Accessibility Communication Group
- Access and Culture
- Technology and Equipment
- Campus and Facilities
Committee members continued work as advocates and worked on accessibility issues in their area.
Collaboratively worked on writing a proposal to address specific Accessibility needs. The committee is working with key stakeholders to discuss implementing accessibility training and awareness programs.
The Committee partners with the University's Online Communications team and the Educational Technology team to assist students, faculty, and staff with ensuring their web content is accessible. Learn more about Web Accessibility, Accessible PDFs, and other Accessibility Resources.
