Make our digital environments more accessible

Helping to make our digital environments more accessible is everyone's responsibility. Plus, it’s an important part of the UC's equity and inclusion core values. The UC Community has been estimated at over 2.5 million alumni, staff, students, and faculty, and the World Health Organization (WHO) reports that 16% of the world is living with a disability. Together we can make our UC community more accessible for all.

We hope you will join the webinar to learn more about your path to accessibility!

Please submit any accommodations requests to Stephanie Nielsen smniel@ucsc.edu by May 11th.

Sponsored by the UC Electronic Accessibility Committee.
