Accessible Technology Initiative

“…it is important to note that we must make provisions for accessibility before we are requested to do so. CSULA must comply with these laws, but even more, we recognize that our real goal, as stated in EO 926, is ‘to make information technology resources and services accessible to all CSU students, faculty, staff and the general public regardless of disability.’ It is, simply, the right thing to do.”
