We know not to create a physical barrier on our campuses that would bar people who use wheelchairs; we are also required to eliminate a wide range of corresponding technology barriers for people with a variety of disabilities. Federal and NYS laws and policies add to the urgency that we do it now.
This site was launched in conjunction with a May 2001 conference co-sponsored by the CUNY University Faculty Senate and the CUNY Office of Computing and Information Services (CUNY/CIS). These pages include information about the conference as well as with links to internal and external technology access resources. After the conference, these web pages will be part of a general reference site on technology access.

We look forward to working together at the conference.
