Accessibility Policy

The Electronic and Information Technology (EIT) Accessibility SPG exists to ensure people with disabilities have equal access to university programs and activities.

Faculty and staff are important partners in helping the university provide services which can be equitably used by people with disabilities. 

The EIT Accessibility SPG has three main goals: 

  1. To promote a common set of guidelines around EIT accessibility on the Ann Arbor, Dearborn, and Flint campuses and in Michigan Medicine.

  2. To improve overall usability by establishing common processes, protocols, and guidance used by university leaders, technology and communication staff, and the community as a whole.

  3. To establish U-M as a leader in implementing accessibility best practices, and meeting diversity, equity, and inclusion values.

The EIT Accessibility SPG references two main Standards.
