Colleges and Universities are using the internet as a tool to facilitate applications, registration, and dissemination of important information about benefits. Web accessibility ensures that all students, faculty and staff have access to this critical information and the valuable education services offered by colleges and universities. It is also a key to compliance with federal law and critical to the success of the growing population of students with disabilities.
