Beginning Monday, June 29, and running through Friday, July 24, Wake Forest University will participate in a Web Accessibility Challenge! An annual event at NC State University, this year they have invited a number of other North Carolina colleges and universities to join the challenge, including Wake Forest University, Appalachian State University, UNC Asheville, East Carolina University, and North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics. As part of the challenge, members of the Accessible Content Working Group and Technology Accessibility Program (TAP) will engage with and support campus website designers and content managers as they work to make their WFU websites more accessible and inclusive.
In this first year of Wake’s participation in the challenge, we are able to accept the first 20 people who sign up, so sign up soon! To join, simply complete the 2020 Web Accessibility Challenge Form by Wednesday, June 24.
You will receive an initial accessibility review of your website and instructions for the challenge. Your participation is a great way to learn more about accessibility, enhance your website, and join the growing conversation on campus around digital access and inclusion.
After the challenge, we’ll celebrate all those who actively participate, with special recognition for those that most improve their websites by reducing accessibility issues. Challenge winners and recognition of participants will be posted on Friday, August 7, on accessibility.wfu.edu.
