Website Accessibility

As ND EPSCoR’s participants and stakeholders become more diverse, we are striving to make our main
web pages more disability friendly. Some of you will miss the “bells and whistles,” but it is important to
keep in mind that many of those features are not easily recognized by the screen readers of our disabled
participants and stakeholders. If you have a disability and are visiting our site, please let us know how
we are doing by contacting ND EPSCoR via telephone at 701-231-8400 or email ndepscor@ndus.edu.
