After four incredible years of virtual connections, we're thrilled to announce that we're back in-person at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City! Experience the buzz of face-to-face connections, meet industry leaders, and network with professionals dedicated to accessibility.

Each year, the CUNY Accessibility Conference brings together hundreds of participants from the New York City region and across North America to discuss accessibility, disability services, and disability activism in the context of postsecondary education. The theme for the 2024 CUNY Accessibility Conference is Breaking Barriers, Building Bridges: Creating a Culture of Accessibility and Inclusion. This theme will highlight the importance of removing barriers by exploring unusual partnerships including collaborations with HR, technology providers, procurement, and more, as well as highlighting the importance of UDL and inclusion, particularly in the context of CUNY’s transition to Brightspace.
