The first of its kind - Accessibility Competency Certification Program

At the Metropolitan State University of Denver we hold close the five core values of Community, Access, Diversity, Respect, and Excellence. To support the core value of Access, the Instructional Accessibility Group has worked diligently towards the creation of a method by which to disseminate as much accessibility knowledge as possible, to as many people as possible. While it has been possible to learn about accessibility concepts individually, accessibility is better approached as a sum of its parts. Understanding all of these parts can be difficult; it is important to recognize those who can and do strive to understand those concepts.

By ensuring all students and community members can access all MSU Denver materials at any time, we can sustain the diverse community that has become such an integral part of MSU Denver’s identity.

In an effort to streamline delivery of this knowledge and recognize those who see its importance; the Instructional Accessibility Group has pioneered the Accessibility Competency Certification Program(ACCP), as a method to assess and certify faculty and staff on campus who have taken their commitment to personally.

Organization
