Princeton staff in a wide variety of roles have earned professional certification in accessibility through the International Association of Accessibility Professionals. The University's training program develops staff awareness and competence in disability and accessibility so that IT, the physical campus, and services become increasingly accessible and welcoming to people with disabilities.
Staff who earn certification become part of Princeton's community of disability allies, and have regular opportunities to further their professional development and gather for events.
An accessible web is not a privilege, it is a right. To aid in making an accessible web is a responsibility and privilege.
The CPACC certificate program has broadened my knowledge of digital accessibility and deepened my understanding of the impact of accessibility on my daily job.
As an instructional designer, I strive to assist educators with designing and creating inclusive instructions and learning experiences. With accessibility in mind and applying Universal Design for Learning framework are essential best practices to create an extraordinary teaching and learning experience for everyone here at Princeton.
Equity is important, and we should all do our best to make sure society is as inclusive as possible. Most of my job is centered on web content, and so that is how I found my way to the CPACC course, because I wanted to make sure that the web content on my department’s site was accessible to all.
