Technology Accessibility for People with Disabilities

As technology becomes more complex and its mastery becomes critical in every field, software and hardware design issues often create a wide range of significant barriers for people with disabilities.  Fortunately,  technology also holds the potential to overcome these new hi-tech barriers, as well as many old low-tech and no-tech barriers.  We at CUNY must work together to identify and eliminate our technology barriers, enhancing CUNY's ability to fulfill its mission of access, opportunity, and diversity, and enabling our students, faculty and staff to explore and excel.  Legal requirements will also be discussed.

Additional information and the agenda
