Why Accessibility

Making things accessible sometimes means doing things a little differently. It can take more time, especially at first. But good accessibility habits ripple out to touch everything you produce, and everything that’s produced from it. 

At the college we’re committed to making things accessible because:

  • It’s the law
  • It’s university policy
  • It’s the right thing to do

Understanding Disability

Disability is not a diagnosis; it’s a mismatch between a person’s abilities and their environment.

We can change the environment, and in doing so, remove disability from the experience.

Inclusive Design

Inclusive design leads to products that understand and enable people of all backgrounds and abilities. It may address disability, age, economic situation, geographic location, language, race, and more.
