Course Accessibility

The George Washington University (GW) is committed to providing accessible course materials to students with disabilities. Accessibility applies to not only websites and software, but also to electronic documents like those created using Microsoft Word or PowerPoint. Often, accessible course materials will not only benefit students with disabilities but also will help ensure that all GW students will be able to access and use them.
Disability Support Services (DSS) provides guidance and teaching support to instructors about how to make courses accessible. For additional information, visit accessibility.gwu.edu or contact DSS.
