Web Accessibility Policy Finalized
The University Policy Office (UPO) announces the issuance of the finalized University Policy 5.12, Web Accessibility Standards. Cornell University is committed to providing an environment in which all people have an equal opportunity to participate in the university’s programs, activities, and services.
This policy has been developed as a result of resolutions by the University Assemblies and the resulting Web Accessibility Working Group established by President Pollack. Intended to govern new websites, web content, and web applications at Cornell, this policy will help the university’s efforts to achieve compliance with federal law and meet or surpass WCAG 2.0 industry standards.
