6th Annual CUNY Accessibility Conference: Student Success in the Digital Age

Thank you for attending the 6th Annual Accessibility Conference! We hope that you found the workshops informative and worthwhile. The many topics covered were chosen to enhance your knowledge and promote awareness as we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the ADA.

Our primary goal in making CUNY more accessible is to promote awareness of the issues and offer solutions to the common problems we face.  Our presenters were outstanding and did a wonderful  job educating the audience by sharing their knowledge.
We thank you for being part of the 6th Annual Accessibility Conference and hope you found it to be worthy of a positive recommendation.
Special thanks to Vice Chancellor Frank Sanchez, Dean Rosa, COSDI and the committee that helped make this event a successful one.
