The first group of students have successfully graduated from the inaugural IADP program! Sponsored by the College of Applied Health Sciences, this course is comprised of three 8-week modules that provide a professional certification upon successful completion. IADP is the first and only university-based, for-credit program in the nation teaching the principles of universal design and accessibility architecture to ensure that people with disabilities can access critical digital resources.
The inaugural course was also recognized by winning the University Professional and Continuing Education Association (UPCEA) Leadership in Diversity Award. Under the direction of Dr. Reginald Alston, Associate Dean of Academic Affairs in AHS, the online certificate was designed by leading experts in functional and digital information accessibility: Dr. Marc Thompson, Mr. Tim Offenstein, Mr. Keith Hays, and Mr. Hadi Rangin.
