Nominations sought for new Web Accessibility Award

April 5, 2011

The Office of Institutional Equity is seeking nominations for the 2011 Web Accessibility Awards. Purdue's Web Accessibility Awards were initiated this year as a way to recognize colleges, schools, departments, programs, and units that have made great strides in meeting or exceeding the University's standards for accessible Web design while demonstrating excellence in design and communication. 

The award of $1,000 will be given to two winners each year during the four-year implementation of Purdue's Web Accessibility Policy. Award recipients must use the monetary award to further their efforts in the area of accessible Web design. These awards are sponsored by a grant from Google and the Office of the Vice President for Ethics and Compliance.
To submit a nomination for the 2011 Web Accessibility Awards, complete and return the nomination form and attachments to Marcy Hintzman, Office of Institutional Equity, Ernest C. Young Hall, 10th Floor by April 22. The nomination form can be found at
