Accessible Technology Initiative
In order to ensure all students have equal access to education free from discrimination, a requirement defined in federal law as well as by the CSU’s Executive Order 1111, San Diego State University (SDSU) is taking actions that significantly and expediently improve our capabilities and performance in delivering equally effective access to all students, including those with disabilities.
The CSU Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI), established in 2006, identifies three priority areas for campuses to deliver accessible websites and instructional materials, and procure technologies that meet accessibility requirements. Use the links in the menu above for more information and resources for faculty/staff addressing accessibility issues.
Successful implementation of the ATI at SDSU requires campus wide participation. The CSU's Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI) implementation approach is driven by the following principles:
- Technology accessibility is an institution-wide responsibility that requires commitment and involvement from leadership across the University.
- Technology access for individuals with disabilities must provide comparable functionality, affordability, and timeliness and should be delivered in as seamless a manner as possible.
- The implementation of Universal Design principles should reduce the need for, and costs associated with, individual accommodations for inaccessible technology products.
San Diego State University is committed to promoting a culture of inclusive technology and meeting our accessibility obligations and compliance to ensure a high quality education for all.
