Logo for Global Accessibility Awareness Day


CELEBRATE ACCESSIBILITY with the Center for Accessibility Services office. 

Spend 1 hour on Thursday, May 18th, learning about digital accessibility.

What can you do in 1 hour? A LOT!


How Did GAAD Start?

The internet, of course! One post gets liked, and shared and poof. Two people with a shared interest connected. Joe Devon's post on November 2011 caught the attention of Jennison Asuncion. Now the 3rd Thursday of May is an annual celebration for digital accessibility. 

What is Digital Accessibility Exactly? defines digital accessibility as, "Websites, apps, kiosks, electronic documents, and anything people read or do in digital form should be created in a way that allows independent use by people with disabilities."  

How Can You Participate in Our E-GAAD Day?
