Accelerate to Accessibility
In 2022, the ADE team will make 12 of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (COALS) fully accessible. This will include 6 of the largest COALS courses in the university core curriculum. Courses will be redesigned to be completely accessible and inclusive and restructured in a logical way that utilizes the campus-wide template. A menu of options addressing barriers to learning, especially those that increase engagement and student success, as well as support for implementing these changes will be provided.
Elevate the learning experience for the largest population of learners within COALS. While the Office of Disability Resources can identify those students who have reported disabilities, a much larger population of students have unreported or temporary disabilities. The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences welcomes all perspectives and prioritizes diversity and inclusion. Providing accessible, inclusive, and well-designed learning content for every student turns sentiment into meaningful action.
Attract, engage, and retain a diverse population of students by empowering instructors to incorporate inclusive teaching and Universal Design principles into their courses, thus creating a welcoming and productive scholastic environment.

ADE now offers captioning services to all COALS courses that have students with hearing impairment. Once we receive notification a student who requires captioning is enrolled in a COALS course, an ADE employee will reach out directly to the instructor.
