California State University, San Bernardino is committed to ensuring equal access to Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for all students, faculty, staff, and interested parties, regardless of disability. The university will comply with, and incorporate by reference, the CSU statement on accessibility articulated in The California State University Board of Trustees Policy on Disability Support and Accommodations  (Executive Order 1111), CSU Coded Memorandum AA-2015-22, and state and federal accessibility laws.  ICT covered by this policy includes, but is not limited to, websites, web applications, software, electronic documents, multimedia, and electronic equipment. ICT that is needed for students, faculty, staff, or interested parties to conduct business with the university must adhere to current World-Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and CSU accessibility requirements.

 Accessibility is a shared responsibility across the university by all who implement, procure, acquire, design, develop, or maintain ICT. To bolster equitable access, the Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI) Steering Committee will provide campus oversight and ensure maintenance of CSUSB’s Web Accessibility Standards, Instructional Materials Accessibility Standards, and Standards for Procurement of Accessible ICT. The approved documentation will be available on the Accessible Technology website.

The VP for Information Technology Services and VP for Student Affairs will act as chair and co-chair of the ATI Steering Committee. The chair and co-chair will constitute the committee to ensure campus wide representation of all constituents and members of the campus community.

Scope

This policy applies to all university units including auxiliary units.

Compliance

The university will conduct periodic [GA1] assessments for compliance with this policy.  Quarterly reports of progress will be provided by the ATI Steering committee to the University Auditor, ADA Compliance Officer, Office of Risk Management, and the Campus Accessibility Advisory Board.
