Digital accessibility is a consideration in every area of Information Technology. Web design, application development, technology procurement, project management, technical support, and social media are just some areas of electronic and information technology that technology providers and support staff need to approach with accessibility in mind.
The University of Iowa is committed to providing information technology and systems that are accessible to all users, including users with disabilities and users of assistive technologies. In support of this commitment, the University maintains an IT Accessibility Policy, along with standards and practices to support and promote accessibility.
Housed within the Information Security and Policy Office (ISPO), the IT Accessibility Group provides leadership and assistance with policy and technical guidelines, training, consultation, assessment and advocacy for accessibility efforts at Iowa. The IT Accessibility group works closely with numerous offices and individuals on the Iowa campus to pursue equivalent opportunity and access to all. Our campus partners include:
- Student Disability Services
- Faculty/Staff Disability Services
- ADA Coordinator
- UI Center for Disabilities and Development
- Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
In this site, you will find information, tips, and techniques to help you ensure that the technology you share is equitable and accessible for all. Please direct any comments and questions to ITAccessibility@uiowa.edu.
