Purdue University Northwest holds inclusivity and diversity as one of its strategic goals. A key objective of that goal is to ensure that the campus, services, communication channels and tools are accessible for students, faculty, staff and the community.
Electronic Information, Communication & Technology Accessibility
Effective June 1, the existing Web Accessibility Policy for Purdue University is now a Standard, with the title: Electronic Information, Communication and Technology Accessibility.
The new Standard is tied to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, better known as WCAG 2.0, Level AA. It also follows the guide on applying WCAG to non-web information and communication technologies.
If you follow the guidelines on this website for digital content, you are already meeting most of the requirements. We will be adding information and providing additional details and tutorials to help all of us understand and follow the new Standard.
