Accessibility Task Force created

The Office of Civil Rights has mandated that the College conduct an accessibility audit of our technology systems and services. A group has been charged with conducting the audit and undertaking other accessibility-related tasks. The group has just begun meeting, and will be asking many others on campus to participate and provide assistance in the coming months.

The chair is Rachel Ford.
Other members include:
• Glenn Gaddis, Academic Services
• Maureen Webster, Assisted Learning Service
• Caryne DeMatteo, Legal Services
• Rhonda DeLong, Marketing and Communications

We will provide updates and details as we organize the process for the audit. Questions should be referred to Rachel Ford (raford3@hfcc.edu).
