Request a Grant Writer

In-kind support valued at up to $50,000 to USA and Canada institutions of higher education to assess and improve digital accessibility. Institutions will receive access to products to measure the accessibility of digital products and provide an action plan for improving access for individuals of diverse abilities. The Campus Consortium has partnered with OculusITTM to provide the technology platform and services for the Digital Accessibility Assessment In-Kind Grant.

It is the mission of the Consortium to help institutions use technology to achieve their strategic plans, modernize the student experience and make education more accessible and affordable for the communities served. Campus Consortium In-Kind grant programs are designed to provide awarded institutions with in-kind solutions and services that are powered by technology partners who have demonstrated a longstanding commitment to serving the needs of campuses and have a track record of successful implementations.

Digital accessibility is the process of making digital products (websites, mobile apps and other digital tools and technologies) accessible to everyone. The Web, online applications, software and other technology must be accessible to provide equal access and equal opportunity to people with diverse abilities. Institutions that do not proactively address digital accessibility do not optimize the online student experience and expose themselves to legal repercussions. The Digital Accessibility In-kind grant is designed to provide a report of an institution’s digital accessibility readiness, itemize high risk priorities and recommend mitigation/resolution. Usability and compliance will be the primary focus of the final report.

Benefits of the digital accessibility assessment in-kind grant:

Measure accessibility of selected applications against industry standard guidelines and checkpoints. Expert analysis by technicians with working knowledge of WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and Assistive Technology training. Avoid costs of hiring in house expertise. Reports provide an easy to understand action plan and affordable prioritization of findings. Trusted advisers and practitioners dedicated to higher education. Key component of Risk Management Strategies.
