School districts and private schools, you’re not alone when it comes to help making your websites ADA compliant. Colleges too are trying to get their arms around website accessibility. And because of our track record in educating and helping the K-12 community understand how to manage web accessibility, the Campus Suite Academy was asked to present at the Thomas More College Institute for Higher Education Compliance.

Compliance of all sorts is a major concern among college administrators, so this conference addressed the current and future landscape of compliance in higher education. Not only website accessibility, but Title IX, the roles of disability coordinators, sexual harassment, campus safety, cybersecurity highlight some of the pressing compliance issues facing colleges.

Surprisingly, many of the colleges attending our workshop aren’t up to speed with website accessibility and require website remediation to identify and fix the accessibility issues that plague their web presence. School districts and colleges are required to follow the federal guidelines used (WCAG 2.1) to make and keep their websites accessible. 

For a video of a presentation very similar to what we presented at the college compliance conference, check out this How to Create an ADA-Compliant Website webinar in the Campus Suite Academy resources section of our website.
