The Website for Advisory Commission on Accessible Instructional Materials in Postsecondary Education for Studetns with Disabilities has launched!

OSERS is proud to announce the launch of the office website for the Advisory Commission on Accessible Instructional Materials in Postsecondary Education for Students with Disabilitiies. 

 

The Commission, established by the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, has brought together government leaders, representatives from the publishing industry, individuals with print disabilities, representatives from two and four-year institutions of higher education and leaders in accessible technology. The Commission will study the current state of accessible materials for students with disabilities in postsecondary education and make recommendation to the U.S. Congress for improving access to the distribution of instructional materials in accessible formats. This is the first commission in history charged with examining accessible instruction materials for postsecondary students with disabilities. 

 

The Website showcases the work of the Commission, and provides information on Commission meeting schedules and documents, members, authorizing legislation, resources and contact information. The Commission welcomes any questions or public commentary and can be contacted at AIMCommission @ed.gov.
