This session will review: Purdue’s journey to gaining buy-in for a Web Accessibility Policy; the process for drafting a policy; the implementation of the policy; training and support; ensuring compliance; and future steps that will continue to help Purdue come into full compliance with section 508 standards and the ADA.
We will review our policy by discussing what worked and what was less successful. We will describe how the Office of Institutional Equity and the volunteer Web Accessibility Committee worked together to educate the campus on its obligations. A variety of approaches to educating campus communities about web accessibility will be considered.
Lastly, we will discuss the current status of our policy as well as next steps to ensure our campus remains in compliance with section 508 standards and the ADA in the face of ever-changing technology.
