Accessibility and Self-Advocacy in Higher Education

Just in time for fall semester, the National Federation of the Blind has released the following resources for college and graduate students and college administration. Equal access on campus remains a priority area for the NFB. Too often, blind students are dissuaded from the classes and degrees of their choice because campuses do not have procedures in place to provide accessible textbooks, internships, learning management systems, and other electronic information technology. Self-advocacy is often a critical skill for success in higher education. Take time now to review the information below and forward the resources to other blind students and campus administrators.

For more information, contact Valerie Yingling, paralegal, at 410-659-9314, extension 2440, or
