The University of California is committed to providing an electronic environment that is accessible to everyone, including individuals with disabilities.

Navigating websites can be difficult —sometimes impossible — for people with disabilities. The University of California seeks to promote the sharing of best-practices and tools related to accessibility among the campuses, and build collaborative relationships with other institutions to provide electronic resources for all individuals particularly those with disabilities.

Guiding Principles of Web Site Development

  • Remember that accessibility and design are complementary.
  • Practice user centric design.
  • Separate style from content when possible.
  • Organize sites for consistency and clarity.
  • Test sites.
  • Write concisely and clearly.
  • Don't rely on alternative, text-only sites.
