The California State University is strongly committed to providing access to information resources and technologies to individuals with disabilities. This commitment is articulated by Chancellor Charles B. Reed in the December 2004 CSU Executive Order 926, “The CSU Board of Trustees Policy on Disability Support and Accommodations.” The intent of the Accessible Technology Initiative is to make information technology resources and services accessible to all students, employees, guests and the general public regardless of disability.
The campus objective at CSULB is to implement the Accessible Technology Initiative Work Plan in a timely manner. A campus ATI Steering Committee and its various subcommittees meet monthly on key areas including web-based information and services, instructional technology, accessible instructional material, and electronic and information technology procurement. Its goal is to develop policies and practices that ensure clarity, consistency and operational feasibility.
Implementation of the ATI Work Plan will be a process of continuous improvement that will require a multi-year, phased approach.
