Accessible Technology

Eastern Washington University strives to fully include everyone who engages with EWUWCAG, accessibility, ADA, disability, accommedation

Eastern Washington University, committed to diverse experiences and perspectives, strives to fully include everyone who engages with EWU. The result will be students, faculty, and staff working together, serving and strengthening our local, national and global communities.

EWU is an equal opportunity, affirmative action institution. In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and Washington State Anti-Discrimination Law, EWU requires that no qualified person will be denied access to, participation in, or the benefits of, any program or activity operated by the University because of disability.

Our offices of IT, Disability Support Services (DSS), and the Office of Equal Opportunity have worked with campus units for many years to make IT accessible to our campus community. However, now our commitment has been more formally stated with the Accessible Technology policy.

Admitted and prospective students, employees, applicants, and countless other visitors access EWU's websites using a wide variety of technologies. In order to promote EWU's mission of continuing to improve access, web content should be accessible to all members of our diverse audience. Accessible web content should be developed in accordance with the following guidelines and standards:

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), which covers a wide range of recommendations for making web content more accessible. The guidelines suggestions accessibility methods for a wide range of people with disabilities, including blindness and low vision, deafness and hearing loss, learning disabilities, cognitive limitations, limited movement, speech disabilities, and photosensitivity.

This website serves as EWU's hub for information about accessible technology. Accessible technology includes electronic documents, websites, videos, software applications, and hardware devices that can be used effectively by everyone, including students, faculty, staff, and visitors. The EWU community is collectively responsible for assuring the technologies we choose, use, and create are fully accessible.
