The Georgia Institute of Technology created the Center for Accessible Materials Innovation (CAMI) to develop creative solutions that will improve the retention and graduation rates of students with disabilities who face accessibility barriers, with a focus on Minority Serving Institutions (MSI).
One of the main challenges CAMI will address is that 31 percent of students with disabilities are likely to drop out, while others will take longer to graduate, compared to non-disabled students.
CAMI will undertake these initiatives during the grant period:
Research to explore the academic experiences of students with print-related disabilities.
Training on accessibility issues related to instructional materials.
A National Task Force to develop an application to display accessibility information about instructional materials.
