The mandate to have accessible courses is clear:

Additional UW Disability Resources

Accessibility at UW serves as the UW’s hub for information about accessible technology. Accessible technology includes electronic documents, websites, videos, software applications, and hardware devices that can be used effectively by everyone, including students, faculty, staff, and visitors with disabilities. The UW community is collectively responsible for assuring the  technologies we choose, use, and create are fully accessible.

The Access Technology Center (ATC) serves users with disabilities, allowing full use of campus computing resources. ATC staff provides accessibility consultations and instructs users in accessible hardware and software basics.

The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) is dedicated to advancing innovation and sharing expertise on teaching and learning across the UW campus. CTL works with individual instructors, departments, units, and communities of practice, to disseminate evidence-based research on teaching, learning, and mentoring.

DO-IT (Disabilities, Opportunities, Internetworking, and Technology) promotes the use of computer and networking technologies to increase independence, productivity, and participation in education and employment.

Title IX/ADA Coordinator Office: Program provides University-wide compliance support to facilitate equal opportunity and ensure compliance with relevant University policies and local, state, and federal laws.

AccessibleWeb@U is a community of UW web designers, developers, and other interested individuals who discuss and share ideas on accessible web design through their online discussion list and through monthly meetings. Meetings are typically held in Allen Library Auditorium the 4th Thursday of each month, 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. unless otherwise announced on the AccessibleWeb email list.
