Web Conference: Best Practices in Developing Accessible Student Services
The Disability Support Services Department will host a web conference
on Tuesday, November 15, 2005 entitled, "Best Practices in Developing Accessible Student Services." Increasingly,
higher education must address the needs of a student body that is diverse with respect to ability and disability.
Administrators are faced with developing services responsive to the entire student body, evaluating a wide range
of needs, understanding legal implications of their policies, and finding the resources necessary to meet student
needs within a tight budget. This conference will discuss these issues and provide practical steps to take to
increase accessibility for students.
Dr. Sheryl Burgstahler is coordinating this event and currently directs DO-IT(Disabilities, Opportunities, Internetworking and Technology)
and Accessible Technology Services at the University of Washington. For more information contact Linda Turner, Disability
Support Services, Ext. 8381 or send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
