NC State University Web Accessibility Policy Statement

NC State is committed to making all official Web content and other electronic information associated with university administration, services, courses or instruction programs and activities conform to widely accepted Web accessibility standards and requirements.

-NC State Web Page Accessibility Regulation, Section 3.1

This commitment is intended to ensure that information and services available on NC State University official Web pages are available to all who seek to access them, including people with disabilities. Toward this goal, University Web developers are expected to meet the Web Accessibility Standards identified within the (Federal) Access Board's Electronic and Information Technology Accessibility Standards by the start of the spring semester, 2007. The NC State Office of Information technology (OIT) maintains a Web site with the current set of standards and priorities for implementation: http://www.ncsu.edu/it/access/standards/

OIT Web accessibility

OIT strives to provide IT resources and online services that are accessible to all, without the need for individual accommodations. OIT's primary Web pages are compliant with the national and international accessibility standards referenced above. In addition, they have been tested for usability by individuals with disabilities and with popular assistive technologies, such voice output and screen magnification software. However, there may still be legacy Web pages that are not yet fully accessible. If you encounter any problems or have accessibility suggestions, please contact the University Coordinator of IT Accessibility.

For problems accessing information

If you are an individual with a disability and you are have difficulty accessing information on a public NC State Web page, contact the owner of that Web page or the University Coordinator of IT Accessibility. In your communication, please include the accessibility difficulty, the URL (Web address) of the material you tried to access, and your contact information.

For information about services, accommodations and assistive technologies available to individuals with disabilities at NC State, contact the Disability Services Office.

For help creating accessible Web pages at NC State

Working in collaboration with other departments on campus, OIT provides a number of resources to help NC State faculty and staff create accessible Web pages and course content. These include software evaluation/authoring tools, online tutorials, workshops, and consulting services. For more information, see http://www.ncsu.edu/it/access/.
