[Faculty/Staff Registration for Beyond Compliance Credit] We could be missing our chance to nurture and educate thousands of students by not valuing digital and physical accessibility enough. The National Center for Education Statistics reports that 19% of college students have at least one disability, and the chances that future and current Kent State students (and/or someone in their close circle) will have a disability are increasing as access to postsecondary education increases. This training will help you see the value of better accessibility preparedness and advocacy as one of the ways we live our Kent State values. Your buy-in can dramatically increase the impact of existing efforts and expand accessibility as a critical part of recruitment, retention, and ultimately, graduation, of Kent State students.
