The systemwide UC Information Technology Accessibility Policy was approved August 27, 2013. The policy promotes an accessible IT environment at the University of California to help ensure that as broad a population as possible may access, benefit from, and contribute to the University’s electronic programs and services.
The policy and requirements are structured to give locations the flexibility to develop and support an IT Accessibility Program that reflects local needs and resources, and balances academic, research, and administrative needs with the realities of resource constraints and technology limitations.
IT accessibility is not a one-time Universitywide effort but must be incorporated into every IT activity on an ongoing basis. Locations need to prioritize IT accessibility efforts and continually work toward achieving a more accessible IT environment. The systemwide Electronic Accessibility Leadership Team (EALT) continues to develop materials and resources, posted on this site, to help locations achieve IT accessibility.
