Accommodating Technology Community

The MSU Accommodating Technology Community (ATC) is one of several Communities for Advising, Facilitating, and Enabling (CAFEs) that provide advice to the Chief Information Officer of Information Technology Services.

The Accommodating Technology Community (ATC) is committed to enhancing accessibility at MSU. We explore ways by which educational tools can be rendered accessible to the entire University, regardless of specific abilities and disabilities. Members review and recommend universally designed teaching and learning tools with the vision that these choices will become available to students, staff, and faculty members throughout our campus.


ATC meetings are open to all members of the MSU community. In 2015-2016, the ATC will meet on the first and third Thursday of each month during the academic year from 1:00–2:30pm in 215 Computer Center, unless otherwise noted.
