I’d like to welcome Christopher Lee and AMAC to the Enterprise Innovation Institute, effective July 1, 2010.
The Alternative Media Access Center is an initiative of the Board of Regents University System of Georgia with a mission to improve system wide services for students with print-related disabilities. AMAC has expanded its services nationwide to include all types of post-secondary institutions and other government agencies. They are committed to removing social and academic barriers to individuals with physical, sensory, and print-related learning disabilities by ensuring that all individuals with print disabilities have equal and timely access to print materials at an affordable cost.
To date, AMAC has been funded by the Georgia Board of Regents, and housed at the University of Georgia in Athens. This summer, AMAC will move to Atlanta and their funding will transfer from UGA to Georgia Tech. Christopher Lee and his staff will become Georgia Tech employees, with Chris reporting to me as a director in EI2.
Christoper is beginning to spend some of his time here on campus, and I’d encourage you to welcome him when you meet him. Also, please help introduce Christopher to anyone on campus who might be interested in connecting to AMAC.
