We’ve made it to 2020! To start the year off right, we’ve made a few updates to the Accessibility Portal that are worth mentioning.
First, some misinformation regarding scooter availability was identified and corrected on the Gameday Accessibility page. We would like to thank all who helped us identify this error and we ask that you all please continue to help us keep this information correct.
Second, the accommodations page was revised to provide additional resources and information about the offices responsible for managing accommodation requests. Also, this page now includes all of the information that was previously on a separate Accessibility Services page. We hope that, by combining these pages, needs can be met more quickly.
Third, after receiving feedback that the number of links on the homepage was overwhelming, we replaced the links section with a newly made Spotlight video. This video features student testimonials regarding Clemson University’s ability to meet accommodation needs. We are very excited to share this video with you! And thank you to all of the students who participated!
It is our understanding that Creative Services plans to release new website guidelines and templates sometime this year. As such, we do not currently have plans to make drastic changes or additions to the Portal. This said, we do hope to add a page that features Clemson’s accessibility related programs and communities (examples include: the Spectrum Program, Adaptive Sports, and Tiger2Tiger).
While we wait to make significant changes to the Accessibility Portal until Creative Services releases its updates, we would love to collect your ideas on how it can be improved. Critiques are also welcomed. Please feel free to use the comment section below to share your ideas with us.
Let’s make 2020 an awesome year for accessibility!
