Web Accessibility Project Calendar

Timeline & Requirements for Year 2016/17

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 require the CSU to provide qualified individuals with disabilities equal access to their programs, services, or activities. Access to the Internet and its resources is considered an area where the ADA applies. The need to make websites, web applications, and digital content accessible is also underscored by California Government Code 11135, which applies Section 508 requirements to the CSU. The ubiquity of the Internet in delivering information and providing services is reason to make its accessibility a priority for the CSU.

Creating and maintaining accessible websites will be ongoing. The dynamic nature of the web and the continuous updating of content requires a process that can be facilitated by the use of an enterprise-wide web evaluation and monitoring tool along with well-defined campus policy and implementation procedures.
