Accessibility Basics

Accessibility is a measure of how simply a person can participate in an activity. It takes many forms in many places, including physical environments, transportation and even web and digital environments. A concept known as universal design refers to a form of design for use by anyone, regardless of ability. Accessibility is becoming more important, in part because we have a growing population that needs more of it. Accessible U is focused primarily on accessibility for people living with physical mobility barriers.
