Keyboard with accessibility buttonAccessibility is important part of all courses that we provide at Utah State and ensures our courses are usable for all students. There are a variety of tools and resources available to help you make your course materials accessible.

Getting Started with Accessibility

It is important to remember that accessibility is a journey rather than a destination. There are a number of quick and easy things you can do when getting started that can make a big difference.
