Accessibility 101

Accessibility 101 is a campus-wide workshop designed as an opportunity to build awareness and understanding of how our practices, policies, attitudes, language, and interactions impact individuals with disabilities. As a group, we will review and discuss what it means to be accessible.

Individuals will be recognized for completing the Accessibility 101 Workshop as “UMW Accessibility Partners.” We hope to create our own transformative movement- one to promote accountability, accessibility, and inclusivity at UMW that aligns with our ASPIRE Values and Principles on Diversity and Inclusion.

Please be sure to RSVP for Accessibility 101 so that we can share the presentation and plan for your attendance.

  • Wednesday, November 9th
  • 3:00pm-4:30pm
  • Capital Room (314), Rucker University Center
