SUNY Policy on Web Accessibility
The University at Albany is committed to providing an online environment that is accessible to a wide and diverse audience.
UAlbany adheres to SUNY’s Electronic and Information Technology (EIT) Accessibility Policy, which recognizes SUNY institutions’ responsibility to assure that individuals with disabilities and individuals who are temporarily disabled have equitable access to electronic information resources, which includes University websites.
The Web Services team creates web templates that meet Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 Conformance Level AA guidelines, identifies and fixes accessibility issues using SiteImprove software, and trains site editors in web accessibility.
Site editors must ensure the information they add to any UAlbany website conforms to accessibility standards. Anyone who creates content, documents and/or videos that are posted on a UAlbany website should review these resources.
