across campus. If you would like to join a SIG or have a question about their area of emphasis, please email the appropriate chair listed below.
The Accessibility SIG is focused on incorporating accessibility into our everyday lives, ensuring the valuable information acquired through teaching, learning and discovery is made available to the widest possible audience. This involves a general understanding of policy and compliance issues as well as standards and best practices. Our ultimate goal is to have all campus websites accessible.
