RTC: Rural - Access Partners-Get the Conversation Started
Access Partners at the University of Montana “is an alliance to promote a campus environment that goes above and beyond disability compliance. It also promotes an inclusive campus community that welcomes all individuals and brings together faculty, staff and students to create a more positive and innovative UM experience for all people.” During the new group’s first meeting, accessibility leaders at UM provided information on resources, trainings and technical assistance offered by various departments. For example, UM’s IT department, offers a series of trainings on the creation of accessible documents. These trainings are free and designed to easily fit into faculty and staff schedules.
