disability support services In higher education, accessibility is defined as the "ability to access" the same content, classrooms, materials, coursework and events, whether at a physical location or online. Accommodations, by contrast, are a tool that allows institutions to make different aspects of the university experience accessible where it might not otherwise be. In general, accommodations are considered any change that enables students with disabilities to participate equally in the environment and activities of either a particular class or university life in general. Accessibility practices aim to make the experiences that a university offers available to the largest number of people.

The Accessibility Series is designed to answer specific questions about accessibility and accommodations. The three main themes that the workshops center around were identified using assessment feedback provided by faculty and staff. Each workshop will be interactive and questions are encouraged.
