Accessibility

The Accessibility SIG is focused on incorporating accessibility into our everyday lives, ensuring the valuable information acquired through teaching, learning and discovery is made available to the widest possible audience. This involves a general understanding of policy and compliance issues as well as standards and best practices. Our ultimate goal is to have all campus websites accessible.
