Learn more about our Accessibility and Technology commitment and policies.

“Accessible” means that individuals with disabilities are able to independently acquire the same information, engage in the same interactions, and enjoy the same services within the same time frame as individuals without disabilities, with substantially equivalent ease of use. In our presentation at NAACO, we identify many of the implications universal access has for Commencement Ceremonies, including the need for captioning, the availability of programs in large print and in braille and other considerations. We also review accessibility planning features for commencement ceremonies, such as staffing projections, individual assistance, and cost projections. Our pursuit of universal access puts us at the forefront of universities. We are going beyond accommodations and creating truly accessible systems for students.

We invite you to review our presentation and work with us to ensure your systems are accessible.
