He teaches courses on universal design and is the PI for a grant project called Promoting the Integration of Universal Design in University Curricula, funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts. For more than two decades, Howard has led the Accessing Higher Ground conference, which focuses on accessible media and technology in higher education and legal and policy issues regarding IT accessibility. In recent years, Howard has been a champion of teaching accessibility to students in computing education. Richard Ladner and Terrill Thompson will present the award to Howard in November at Accessing Higher Ground.
