A Closing Reminder

This is a work in progress, if you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to reach out to the V.P.S.S. office at We will love to hear from you, whether it is a question about Alt-Text/close captions or a suggestion on how we can improve this page.

Lastly, please provide Alt-Text and closed captions in the future. There are many students who are unable to participate on campus because they do not have access to simple things, like promotional materials on Instagram. This is a simple fix, but it can have monumental effects on individuals and maybe even your organizations. Who knows, an individual who could have transformed your club may have been unable to access your organization because they struggled to access your promotional materials. A final point: no one group benefits from this, we all do.

“Part of the problem is that we tend to think that equality is about treating everyone the same, when it’s not. It’s about fairness. It’s about equity of access.” – Judith Heumann, Being Heumann: An Unrepentant Memoir of a Disability Rights Activist
