Our Goals

U-M is committed to both proactively addressing IT accessibility issues and to being responsive to the needs of individuals with disabilities. IT accessibility is a part of U-M’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and to providing open and welcoming spaces for individuals with disabilities. U-M recommends the use of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA standard when procuring or developed IT systems or content.

This website is the core resource for finding help and resources related to both learning how to provide more accessible IT systems and content, and for reaching out to U-M to let us know of any technology barriers that you encounter.
