Accessible Technology Initiative


This site is a project of the Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI) of the California State University system. "It is the policy of the CSU to make information technology resources and services accessible to all CSU students, faculty, staff and the general public regardless of disability."

All CSU programs, services, and activities should be accessible to all students, staff, faculty, and the general public. This encompasses all technology products used to deliver academic programs and services, student services, information technology services, and auxiliary programs and services.

The CSU's Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI) implementation approach is driven by the following principles:

  • Technology accessibility is an institution-wide responsibility that requires commitment and involvement from leadership across the enterprise.
  • Technology access for individuals with disabilities must provide comparable functionality, affordability, and timeliness and should be delivered in as seamless a manner as possible.
  • The implementation of Universal Design principles should reduce the need for, and costs associated with, individual accommodations for inaccessible technology products.
