Partners are a crucial component of the AccessComputing project. Partners
- engage with other partners in bi-monthly multi-media conferences;
- participate in project training and an online community of practice;
- commit to taking steps that will make computing courses, resources, programs, and/or project activities more welcoming and accessible to individuals with disabilities; and
- gather data used to measure progress of increasing the number of students with disabilities who have majors, complete degrees, and participate in programs in computing disciplines.
For a list of interventions AccessComputing institutional partners can employ to make their computing and information technology programs more welcoming and accessible to students with disabilities, including veterans, see AccessComputing Partners Potential Interventions. The following partner pages list the interventions that individual partners plan to undertake.
AccessComputing partners and collaborators who have forged pathways which significantly advance students with disabilities in computing fields are awarded the Capacity Building Award.
