Education Task Force

Mission Statement

The WaSP Education Task Force was created in 2005 to work directly with institutions of higher education to help raise awareness of Web standards and accessibility among instructors, administrators, and Web development teams.


  1. Encourage instruction of Web standards in interactive and Web design programs, to prepare students for positions which will demand skills in standards-based, accessible design.
