"It is the policy of the CSU to make information technology resources and services accessible to all CSU students, faculty, staff and the general public regardless of disability." - Executive Order 1111
As part of our committment for a diverse and inclusive university, California State University, Los Angeles strives for excellence in making all of the university's communications and information technology accessible to everyone. This philosophy coincides with Executive Order 1111 from the California State University (CSU) Chancellor's Office, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), Section 504 & Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, alongside the CSU Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI).
Cal State LA's web content is guided by the Section 508 web standards which include but are not limited to:
- Alternative text for non-text elements.
- Multimedia with equivalent alternatives (i.e. closed captioning).
- Color contrast.
- Color not being the sole method to convey information.
- Descriptive links.
