University Accessibility Policy and Procedures

On July 1, 2017, new accessibility policy and procedures went into effect. The policy and procedures are designed to ensure our information and communication technology (ICT) is accessible for all individuals. ICT broadly applies to all equipment and technology, from websites to PDFs, software to instructional content. Every division and college is responsible for monitoring, maintaining and resolving accessibility issues. All faculty and staff who handle content on the web, instructional or otherwise, should attend Basic Web Accessibility training annually.
