The Campus-wide Accessibility Committee, formed in May 2016, has representation from staff, faculty, and students.  The committee is dedicated to assessing the campus for accessibility barriers in the digital, physical, and educational domains and making recommendations for improvements as needed.

The committee supports the following principles:
  • Transparency and open communication to campus leadership and all campus constituents
  • Anticipate, value and support diversity and learner differences
  • Reduce barriers on campus, in classrooms and in electronic communications
  • Measure conformance quality using standards such as Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) or higher education best practices
  • Validation versus checklists. In other words, focus testing on user success rather than relying solely on testing tools
  • Value usability and user experience over compliance
  • Shared responsibility
