Comms Training & Templates



We believe all web content needs to be accessible to people with a wide range of abilities. Student Affairs staff are encouraged to keep accessibility in mind when editing content for their web pages, social media posts, videos, and anything else that contributes to a person's web experience.

Duke's web accessibility guidelines can be found here. Click on the buttons below for a few training resources that we've found relevant to our every day work.
