UIC Digital Accessibility Committee


The University of Illinois at Chicago  Digital Accessibility Committee oversees the policy and procedures relating to accessibility of online information. This committee supports the campus in the process of advancing Web accessibility through:

  • coordinating training and assistance with Web accessibility
  • providing accessibility assessment tools
  • providing reports and recommendations on how campus webmasters can improve their sites to meet current best practices and established accessibility guidelines
  • developing policies to make online information more accessible and usable
  • assisting webmasters by providing clear campus guidelines on how to improve accessibility
  • helping the campus prioritize efforts in creating new websites and modifying older websites.

The Digital Accessibility Committee is dedicated to the long term effort of improving the accessibility of our campus websites, but will need the active cooperation and efforts of campus webmasters for accessibility to be implemented at UIC.

The Digital Accessibility Committee is available to support campus webmasters. For more information and help with checking a site for accessibility, contact the committee.
