Calling all UMD students!

The University of Maryland (UMD) College of Information Studies (INFO) is proud to host our first accessibility hackathon for UMD students, “Empower Access 2023: Disability Awareness Month INFO Hackathon,” where innovation meets real-world utility. Using physical and virtual tools and hands-on guidance, participants will have the unique opportunity to design groundbreaking accessibility solutions. Collaborate with peers, industry experts, and disability advocates to ensure technology serves everyone equally. You can make a difference! Let’s build a world without barriers together!

Please contact at least one week prior to the event to request disability accommodations. In all situations, a good faith effort (up until the time of the event) will be made to provide accommodations.

This is a free event. Registration required.
