Subject: [Athen] Electronic & Information Technology/Accessibility Coordinator Positions
Good morning all,
Our University is currently working on an EIT policy and to correspond with this policy, we are considering the creation of some new positions to help with the implementation/monitoring of accessible EIT. A bit of background, we are in Ohio, where three sister institutions have been recently investigated by OCR and as a result, have created an EIT policy. We are receiving a bit of pushback from faculty regarding the need to create new positions to handle the policy and I want to make sure I gather enough information as possible before I present to faculty senate.
I have been doing some research on what types of positions we would need and what they would entail and am hoping the group can help me answer a few questions:
1. Does your institution have a similar position? If so:
a. Can you send me the job description/duties
b. When was this position created
c. Why did you institution feel the need for this position
d. What was the structure of your disability services department before vs after the creation?
Any information is always helpful and most appreciated!
