Extant research has suggested that community college articulation agreements, admissions materials, sexual assault reporting guidelines, ADHD documentation instructions, and a host of other college student-related content is likely unreadable by its intended audience. Moreover, the majority of content posted on postsecondary institutional websites caters to a specific group of students: able-bodied English-speakers without learning disabilities. This presentation provides an overview of extant research regarding the readability, translation, and ADA accessibility compliance of institutional websites in the United States and provides practitioners with simple, practical solutions to render online content accessible, equitable, and ADA compliant for a wide audience. These solutions can ultimately increase stakeholder interaction with one’s institutional website, producing a more diverse, engaged stakeholder base.
