It has been a busy summer at Michigan State University.

We just launched an updated version of the Michigan State University  
(MSU) Web Accessibility Site. (http://www.msu.edu/webaccess/) We have  
loaded it up with all kinds of tools, resources, and articles that we  
think the university community might find helpful.

The site is currently getting highlighted in the MSU home page  
(http://www.msu.edu) spotlight.  Due to the heavy traffic the MSU  
home page gets, this gives really good visibility to the new Web  
Accessibility site and to Web Accessibility in general.

I have also been accepted to give a presentation on Evaluating Web  
Sites for Accessibility at the  Higher Education Web Developers  
Conference 2005 in Rochester, NY from Nov. 6-9.  This will be my  
first conference presentation :-).

MSU is  working on an institute-wide public online events calendar.   
We are making it a high priority for the events calendar to be as  
accessible as possible.  Also, in future implementations of the MSU  
home page, the MSU Web Team has made Web Accessibility a very high  
priority.

Sincerely,
Justin Thorp
