EITA Implementation Plan

Web Accessibility in the Wake of COVID-19

As UM transitions to remote teaching and learning, please note a March 19, 2020 blog post entitled Remember Web Accessibility When Moving Education Online in the Wake of COVID-19. This post brings to the reader's attention an OCR webinar on Online Education and Web Accessibility. The webinar focuses on equal access to education and promoting educational excellence through vigorous enforcement of civil rights.

Please feel free to contact Kathy Garramone, UM's EITA coordinator, at any time if you have questions about UM’s EITA policy and procedures.
