The Accessibility Matters Blog

What is the Accessibility Matters Blog?

The Student Disability Services is creating a new spotlight system that works to inform the public about issues that people with disabilities face daily. This blog page will serve to bring together different stories from students, alumni, and faculty that will enhance your understanding of some of the challenges, concerns, and most importantly, successes of people with disabilities.

What is our purpose?

The main purpose of this blog page is to highlight the challenges, successes, and unique stories of people with disabilities. Check out the most recent blog for a dose of disability awareness.
