AccessATE supports the work of the NSF-funded Advanced Technological Education (ATE) projects and centers in making the materials and activities they develop more accessible for all students and faculty, including those with disabilities. The project aims to increase awareness and understanding of accessibility requirements and provide guidance, tools, and support that offers solutions and helps achieve compliance with accessibility standards.

The project is led by the Internet Scout Research Group (home to ATE Central), in collaboration with the Center for Applied Special Technology (CAST), the National Center for Accessible Media (NCAM), DeafTEC, the Technological Education Center for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Students, and Human Engineering Research Laboratories (HERL).  Other partners include the American Association of Community CollegesEvaluATENISODHI-TECLuka Partners, and Pellet Media.
