    1. Web-Site Accessibility (Guests: Gretchen Holden, Andrea Blair, Janelle Corkill)

      Guests from Disability Student Services and committee members discussed the issues of making web-sites accessible to students with disabilities. It was noted that the University does make a reasonable effort to make information accessible, but that there is not enough resources to assist students and faculty to provide support for web-site accessibility in the manner in which other ADA obligations are addressed. A letter will be sent to Dr. Unger requesting that CITAC be responsible for finding the resources to provide this support. Rowlett, Zollman, Streeter, and Ratzloff agreed to serve as a web-issues committee.
