We invite you to partner with us.

We invite students, faculty, researchers, business and nonprofits to join our efforts to make the world a more accessible place.

Collaborate on research

As a research center, CREATE’s lifeblood is conducting cutting-edge research, and designing, building, and evaluating the next generation of accessible technologies. We pursue large, collaborative moonshot projects and respond with agility to support timely research opportunities that arise.

Continue learning about accessibility

CREATE trains the next generation of technology designers, engineers, and product managers to champion accessibility in their work. We support teaching students and faculty about accessible technology and about accessible teaching & learning.

Translate research into products and services

Translation activities take our research into the world in the form of products and services, and ensure diverse voices inform our innovations.

Our translation goals include enabling CREATE innovations to move into the world, supporting sustainable research deployments, and establishing cooperative relationships between researchers and the community.
