Preparing for and earning a CPACC certification opens your eyes to the world in a way you’ve never experienced it before. It not only affects my work at Princeton University but I find myself considering accessibility everywhere I go -- when I use public transportation, when I use my cellphone, when I attend events, even when I’m just at the supermarket. I began this work with an intention to be more inclusive in my role at the university but I never expected the content of the course to affect everything I do. Especially after learning about the different models of disability, I’ve come to understand that considering accessibility isn’t just something to do when you’re in the right mood. It’s a necessity if we want to include everyone in everything we do. And at Princeton University, we want and need to include everyone.
