Initiative Background

The Accessible Technology Initiative reflects the California State University's (CSU) commitment to provide access to information resources and technologies to individuals with disabilities. This commitment is articulated in Executive Order 926 (EO 926), the CSU Board of Trustees Policy on Disability Support and Accommodations. The initiative is comprised of facilitating improvements in three priority areas:

  1. Web,
  2. Instructional Materials,
  3. Procurement of Information and Communications Technologies (ICT)

As a result of this executive order and subsequent Academic Affairs coded memorandums, CSUSB formulated the ATI Steering Committee which is comprised of a student representative, faculty, staff and managers to develop policies and procedures to bring the campus into compliance with the directives set forth in these communications.
