Kevin Blemel

Senior Director of Product Accessibility

Kevin leads 2U's accessibility initiative, reframing differences as learning opportunities aligned with our core mission: to enable life-changing educational experiences for more students everywhere. He builds shared understanding to coordinate cross-team efforts to design an effective learning experience and has raised awareness of how decisions can cause exclusion or frustration. By moving from responsive, all-hands-on-deck triage to a strategic commitment to proactive work throughout planning and development process, we distribute responsibility, clarify purpose, reduce cost, and extend the value of increased usability and flexibility to everyone.
