Hi All,

We at DO-IT (http://uw.edu/doit) at the University of Washington have
funding from the National Science Foundation to produce a video that
features prominent leaders in higher education sharing their insights
and perspectives regarding the importance of working proactively to
ensure our campuses are accessible to all students, employees, and
visitors, including those with disabilities. The video will primarily
focus on accessibility of information technology, as the primary
audience is CIO's and other IT leaders. Therefore we are seeking video
footage of college and university presidents, chancellors, CIOs, and
other leaders, who are willing to talk about the importance of
accessibility on their campuses. Participating institutions will do
their own filming, then deliver the raw footage to the University of
Washington, where we'll do the editing, add captions and audio
description, and produce the final product. If there's a cost for
filming, we can help with that.

For anyone who has access to the leaders on their campuses, and would
like to participate in this project, please let me know. We're hoping
to have received all footage by January 13.
