Accessibility Training Available

Published: July 1, 2009

Information Technology Services (ITS) is pleased to provide a new training offering to campus employees on how to create documents accessible to disabled individuals.

As an educational institution, equal access to documentation, information and technology is an institutional goal and mandate from the Chancellor’s Office (Executive Order 926). Accessible content doesn’t just benefit the disabled — it benefits everyone. Documents such as those posted to CSULB Web sites, sent via e-mail, or sent to large audiences need to be accessible.

Any employee from any division or auxiliary is welcome to attend these classes. There are no prerequisites; however, it is assumed employees are familiar with Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Adobe Acrobat and use them in their daily university duties. Beginning in this month, classes will be held in the ITS Training Room, located in Brotman Hall, Room 180-D.
