We strive to ensure that people with disabilities have equal, available and reliable access to the organization’s services, digital content, and technologies. Our promise encompasses our offerings made available through both technology and our people.
The university's commitment to equal access to IT has been more formally stated through the publication of an IT Digital Accessibility Policy. The policy looks to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Level AA for guidance in meeting its IT accessibility commitments.
