Jason Khurdan (Trainer) Profile PIcture
Jason Khurdan
Manager, Access and Disability Resources,
Rutgers University, USA

Jason has 10 years of experience in the field of accessibility. Currently, he serves as the Manager of Central Services for the Rutgers Access and Disability Services (RADR) at Rutgers University (USA). 

His team works to facilitate an equitable learning environment through working individually with students to assess needs and provide appropriate technology, as well as with the collective university community to implement accessibility initiatives. 

Jason has a passion for building strong teams that accomplish what others view as impossible. He believes that people help people, not programs or technology. His formula for success has always been: adding value to his team through assisting them in growing; making informed- data-driven decisions; and using technology to accelerate what the team can achieve together.

He did his undergraduate studies in Political Science and graduate studies in Global Affairs at Rutgers University. Most recently, he completed the Harvard Business School CORe program.

Jason is knowledgeable in web languages such as HTML, JavaScript, ARIA, CSS, and programming languages such as Python.

Outside of his professional work in accessibility, he practises Aikido, works on Raspberry Pi projects, and does 3D design/ printing.
