PERC Accessibility Survey

Over the next couple of years PERLOC will be assessing the accessibility of the PERC conference with the intended goal of increasing the access and support for all people to attend PERC. In Summer 2019 we are kicking off the project with a survey for past PERC attendees about their experiences with accessibility at previous PER conferences. We encourage all PERC attendees to participate in the survey! Here is the link: https://is.gd/PERCAccessibility

We are also recruiting volunteers to be interviewed about their PERC experiences with accessibility. Please contact Erin Scanlon if you are interested in participating.
