IT Accessibility

Background

The systemwide UC Information Technology Accessibility Policy was approved and became effective August 27, 2013. The policy promotes and supports an accessible IT environment within the University of California system. By supporting IT accessibility, the University of California helps ensure that as broad a population as possible is able to access, benefit from, and contribute to its electronic programs and services.

Guidance on Prioritizing IT Accessibility Efforts

UC Irvine will prioritize information technology accessibility efforts and continually work toward achieving a more accessible IT environment. IT accessibility is not a one-time UC-wide effort, but instead needs to be incorporated into every IT activity on an ongoing basis. For guidance on prioritizing your unit’s projects, refer to the UCOP Accessibility Prioritization Matrix (PDF).
