AccessComputing

The goal of the Alliance for Access to Computing Careers (AccessComputing) is to increase the participation of people with disabilities in computing fields. AccessComputing collaborators apply proven practices to:

increase the number of students with disabilities successfully pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees and careers in computing fields.

increase the capacity of postsecondary computing departments to fully include students with disabilities in computing courses and programs.

create a resource to help students with disabilities pursue computing fields, guiding them through critical junctures to computing careers and computing educators and employers, and professional organizations develop more inclusive programs and learn about promising practices.
