Global Accessibility Awareness Day is May 18

On May 18, the Division of IT encourages everyone to celebrate  Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD).

What does Global Accessibility mean?

Global Accessibility brings awareness to the importance of digital accessibility and inclusion for persons with disabilities.

Digital accessibility is when technology has been designed in a way so it can be inclusive to everyone, whether you have a disability or not.  At Mizzou, Digital accessibility ensures a broad population of students, faculty and staff can access, benefit from, and contribute to our university. This means using the right standards and tools that make it easier to get your message across for everyone.

It’s never too late to learn how to make your MU documents and websites digitally accessible.
