Cora Kenfield

Cora Kenfield, Assistant Dean for Strategic Planning & Director of the Office of Sustainability, received a New York State Education Department 2021-2022 program grant for “Enhancing Supports & Services for Students with Disabilities for Postsecondary Success (SWDPS).”  The grant will enhance accessibility in Vassar’s Learning Management System and online course content through an integrated accessibility suite for Moodle, which has built-in tools to flag potential accessibility issues for course designers and faculty as well as a document conversion tool that makes it easier for students and faculty to convert readings into a variety of different accessible formats. The one-year grant will also support related training materials and resources for faculty to help them make their course materials more accessible.
