CREATE’s education initiatives teach students about accessibility and how to champion it in the workforce. Student members represent a variety of disciplines to join CREATE, with interests in research, education or translation-to-practice.

In Autumn 2020, we launched the Student Mini-Grant Program for students doing accessibility work and held the first CREATE Seminar on Race & Accessibility.

Together with Microsoft, we held an Education & Accessibility workshop that resulted in new whitepapers and partnerships.
