Community of Practice

Among the strategies for meeting AccessComputing objectives for serving veterans is a Community of Practice (CoP) for veteran stakeholder groups. Communicating using email and other electronic tools, CoP members share perspectives and expertise, and identify practices that promote the participation of veterans with disabilities in postsecondary education and careers, including those in computing and IT fields. Collaborators can also receive support from AccessComputing staff in making their project activities more accessible (e.g., assistance in the design of an accessible website, suggestions for recruiting and accommodating veterans with disabilities).

The AccessComputing Veterans CoP is populated by veterans with disabilities, service providers, and volunteer mentors. Members
