Many employees send emails, post announcements, edit websites, and make new documents on a regular basis. This digital content must be accessible for all users including people with disabilities. UNC-Chapel Hill's Digital Accessibility Office (DAO) offers services and support to help staff learn how to do this in manageable ways. In this presentation, we will discuss DAO's trainings, partnerships, consultations, and related services.

We offer a campus-wide training program to teach staff how to apply accessibility best practices in their day-to-day work. We developed a Digital Accessibility Liaisons program that brings campus representatives together to advocate for accessibility. We provide consultation services to helps groups incorporate accessibility into their projects. Through these services, staff have an opportunity to stand out among their colleagues. They also contribute to UNC-Chapel Hill's strategic plan to build an inclusive campus community.
