We are dedicated to creating inclusive and accessible environments, services, and products.
Our instructors educate themselves on inclusive pedagogy and universal design. We invite participants to request accommodations before a class or workshop session. We also update our teaching spaces, furniture, and technology using principles of universal design.
We incorporate accessibility best practices and guidelines into our digital design and development processes
and aim to meet WCAG 2.1 AA standards
Many of our digital resources are maintained by third-party vendors. We continuously advocate for better accessibility of these resources by:
- Participating in the Library Accessibility Alliance through the Big Ten Academic Alliance
- Alerting vendors of accessibility issues in their products
- Negotiating for more accessible products
