In this paper, we reviewed a usability evaluation of a leading graduate school homepage in order to adapt the design and format for users with disabilities. Teachers College, Columbia University, redesigned its website during the 2003-2004 academic year. An initial round of user tests on the site with faculty, students, staff, alumni, and prospective students showed positive improvements on seven dimensions of usability. However, in order to ensure universal accessibility as per the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) guidelines, future usability evaluations need to include testing the site's accessibility for users with disabilities.
