Web Accessibility Procedures and Resources

The University strives to provide accessible web services, including persons who may have vision, hearing, mobility, or other conditions that may necessitate adaptive software/hardware, or consumer modification of font size, colors, response time, etc.  As the University regularly upgrades our web services, improvements in the overall accessibility of its web pages will be a high priority.
