ATAC (Assistive Technology & Accessibility Center)
Assistive Technology & Accessibility Center (ATAC) is a specialized computer lab that provides and supports a variety of assistive technologies (AT) for students, faculty, and staff. AT is traditionally used by individuals with disabilities to facilitate alternate means of access to information. However, many AT programs are often so effective that they are adopted into mainstream use by most everyone and thus the ATAC lab is open to everyone.
ATAC also focuses on the field of accessibility. Accessibility considers strategies, techniques, and best practices so that individuals with disabilities using AT are properly able to access materials including Web, documents, and other forms of digital content.

CSUSB is committed to making its electronic and information technologies accessible to individuals with disabilities.
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (504) require that qualified individuals be provided equal access to programs, services, and activities. California Government Code 11135 applies Section 508 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act, as amended in 1998, to State entities and to the California State University (CSU) System. Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act was enacted to eliminate barriers in information technology, to make new opportunities available to people with disabilities and to encourage development of technologies that will help achieve these goals. The California State University System statement on accessibility is articulated in Executive Order 926.
Below are the compliance standards used in support of the federal and state legislation:
