Digital Accessibility

What is accessibility?

Accessibility is the practice of making websites and digital information accessible for people with hearing, movement, sight, cognitive and other disabilities. An ethical and legal responsibility, accessibility is also an expression of the College's commitment to "identify and alleviate barriers to ensure equitable practices across campus."

Who is responsible for accessibility?

All members of the Union community have a role to play in supporting a culture of accessibility. Anyone who creates, shares, distributes and publishes digital information is responsible for following accessibility standards and best practices.
