Winter 2020 Accessibility Champions

The NC State University IT Accessibility Office is proud to announce Amy Grubbs and Emily Harrell-Hilburn as the first recipients of the Accessibility Champion Award. This award is to recognize their contribution to making the campus digital environment more inclusive and welcoming.

Amy and Emily took the initiative to remove disability-related barriers from the Onboarding website, which they oversee. Following these improvements, our new automated web accessibility checker, Pope Tech, reports that the Onboarding site now has no accessibility errors and no contrast errors.
