EDUCAUSE is a higher education technology association with nearly 2,000 institutional members and hundreds of industry members. Its active members include IT leaders and professionals, from CIOs to people working in the trenches to deploy and support IT on college campuses. In 2007, EDUCAUSE formed an IT Accessibility Constituent Group, which provides a mechanism for members to collaborate and share best practices on IT accessibility issues. The annual national EDUCAUSE conference attracts thousands of attendees, and typically includes multiple sessions related to accessibility. EDUCAUSE actively works to influence laws and policies that affect higher education technology, include those related to accessibility. This session will explore the important role that EDUCAUSE plays in accessibility, with a focus on what it all means for disability services providers.
