APIA Heritage Month, April 8-May 16

In 2007, all CSU campuses were mandated by the Chancellors Office through the Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI) to comply with Federal and California law on accessibility of electronic and information technology (E&IT).

For the past 6 years, CSUMB has actively promoted accessibility and has made significant accomplishments in meeting the requirements set forth in the ATI. The campus has integrated E&IT accessibility into many core business processes and has developed online training modules for staff and faculty in the areas of Instructional Materials, Procurement, and Web.

Moving forward, the campus is renewing its commitment to accessibility as a service to our students and community. In the ongoing effort to promote E&IT accessibility at CSUMB, the campus will:

  • create an awareness campaign for all faculty and staff
  • provide a set of benchmarks for achieving E&IT accessibility
  • encourage and assist with integration of accessibility into all business processes
  • create a process for faculty and staff to gain expertise in making their work more accessible
  • recognize and reward the efforts of individuals and units in meeting these goals

We would like to thank the staff and faculty whose contributions to accessibility have made CSUMB a more inclusive and accessible teaching, learning, and work environment.
