Training and Community Building Locations

Stephanie Keyes Accessibility Center

The Stephanie Keyes Accessibility Center was named in honor of a former student who provided Accessible Ed & Disability Resources with a generous endowment. This brief presentation was created and shared during our naming ceremony and gives some additional context. The center provides space for coordination, production, training, and awareness building. It is where we produce accessible e-text, braille, tactile graphics and 3d prints, but also where we coordinate ASL Interpreting and TypeWell. To learn more please visit!
