Office of Civil Rights Letter on Post-Secondary Online Access

LINCS member, AnneMarie Molinari-Sanders, shared the 2023 letter from the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Civil Rights, focusing on the "Department of Education’s ongoing efforts to address barriers that prevent people with disabilities from participating in online services, programs, and activities that colleges, universities, and other postsecondary institutions make available to students and the public".

AnneMarie notes that, "this letter addressed the 100-plus audits that took place across various educational entities across the U.S. This indicates the seriousness of implementing accessibility policy within educational institutions including our field, adult education, and literacy."
