IT Accessibility Policy

The IT Accessibility Policy will promote high-level coordination of accessibility efforts on the Urbana-Champain campus of the University of Illinois, will define a standard of accessibility compliance and, through a flexible implementation plan, will establish procedures to help ensure that information technology used for the mission of the University is accessible to all persons, regardless of ability or delivery format. Through this pragmatic approach, our campus will be enabled to ask ourselves what can we do today for accessibility that we could not do yesterday.

Ultimately, the IT Accessibility Policy will do the following:

  1. Encourage a proactive response to accessibility concerns on the Urbana-Champaign campus
  2. Facilitate flexible accessibility compliance that is responsive to the needs and available resources of campus
  3. Protect the University from risk and loss of prestige
  4. Enhance the University’s reputation as a leader in accessibility for persons with disabilities
