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.
Technology is a great resource but we’re not using it to its full potential if we don’t include the whole community. I took the CPACC to understand the difficulties people with disabilities have to face and I’m now better prepared to support all my end users with technical problems. I’ve also learned to always include accessibility when presented with a problem so that the solution will be inclusive and provide an overall better user experience.
