WSU updated the web accessibility policy, Executive Policy 7, (effective August 23, 2017), and has engaged in a continuous process to update web accessibility procedures to best serve our community and to meet state and federal requirements.
Guides and tools are available for web publishers and administrators. WSU faculty and staff are encouraged to become familiar with the web accessibility guidelines. Subdomain owners (see Executive Policy 21) are responsible for ensuring that content on their site(s) are accessible in conformance with EP7, and all content publishers at the University must participate in annual web accessibility training before publishing content online. (see BPPM 85.55)
All new web content must meet the updated standards. In addition, all web content created after January 1, 2013 must meet the updated standards in accordance with WSU’s remediation plan.
Information about the required training for content publishers can be found at Web Communication Training and Support. Support will be available for departments as needed.
As WSU Web Communication develops new resources, they will be posted on this site. Follow the new posts at web.wsu.edu for information as these are created.
