Session Details

Navigating a diverse campus

DPA5 Development, Programming and Architecture

Location: Pavilion Ballroom West

MONDAY, 3:00 - 3:45 p.m.

In recent years, most universities moved to an interactive format for their campus map. However, most campus accessibility information remains static. Some of the best interactive map implementations have accessibility information available for each building, but deliver it as a PDF on a building-by-building basis. At the University of Tennessee, the Office of Communications and Marketing, Facilities Services, and the Office of Equity and Diversity teamed up to provide comprehensive, interactive accessibility information. Phase One launched January 13th when the team provided a half dozen accessibility layers on the university’s interactive campus map. Phase Two is underway as Tennessee builds a responsive website with buildings’ interior accessibility information to provide a fluid way to navigate its campus with door-to-door accessibility information.
