The purpose of Global Accessibility Awareness Day is to raise awareness about the importance of accessibility in digital content creation.  As students, faculty, and staff at CSUSB, each of us play an important role in ensuring that our documents, web pages, videos, and IT purchases consider accessibility so that all individuals can achieve equal access to information. GAAD is held annually on the third Thursday in May. This year, GAAD was on May 19th.
