The Accessibility Institute works closely with the Carleton community (on and off campus) to mobilize the expertise and experience of our faculty, staff, and students to create relevant accessibility education opportunities.

We take a broad approach to knowledge building in accessibility; from assessing physical spaces, to developing accessible web communications, to accommodations in the workplace, to attitudes and understanding non-visible disabilities.
