Accessibility

Humboldt State University is committed to providing reasonable access to its programs and facilities for all members of the HSU community. The following information is available in this section; click the links below or in the QuickLinks section to the right to access specific items.

Accessibility :: Web Accessibility Compliance

Two governing principles apply to web accessibility compliance:

Web :: Accessibility Training

The Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI) is an initiative from the Chancellor's Office to make HSU's information technology accessible to all students, faculty, staff and the general public regardless of disability. ATI training will be a requirement for website developers, owners and maintainers using the new Official HSU Web Server and for faculty who host course material on the HSU User Web Server. For those using the HSU User Web server for personal sites, basic accessibility training is encouraged, but is not a requirement.

Labs :: Student Computing Laboratories/Workstations

There are about 1,100 computer workstations available to students at Humboldt State University. Some of these are single workstations, others are in computing laboratories managed by departments for discipline-specific instruction and use, some are in laboratories managed by Academic Computing and available for general campus use, and others are in facilities managed by service units that provide information and online services to students (e.g., the Testing Center). No matter how these workstations are situated and managed, they must be reasonably accessible.

Accessibility :: Website Development for Accessibility

The Internet is one of the most important communications media used at Humboldt State University. It connects users to information sources and to each other, delivers coursework, and enables self-service administrative tasks such as registering for classes. Web pages must be reasonably accessible to enable students, faculty, staff, and the general public to participate fully in the HSU community.   

Accessibility :: General Accessibility Policy

January 2002 P02-01 Supersedes P01-4, P98-05 Humboldt State University Policy and Procedures for Accommodating Individuals with Disabilities I. POLICY It is the policy of Humboldt State University to provide equal access and reasonable accommodation for individuals with disabilities to participate in any program, service, or opportunity provided by the campus, including access to the content and services of World Wide Web pages authored by the University. II. TERMS

Accessibility :: Web Accessibility Criteria

Below is a list of conditions every Humboldt State University website is required to meet in order to pass accessibility testing. If, after best efforts, any University website developer cannot create an accessible page, a link must be provided to an alternative page that is accessible, has equivalent information or functionality, and is updated as often as the inaccessible (original) page.

Accessibility :: Workstation and Lab Accessibility

There are about 1,100 computer workstations available to students at Humboldt State University. Some of these are single workstations, some in computing laboratories managed by departments for discipline-specific instruction and use, some in laboratories managed by Academic Computing and available for general campus use, and others in facilities managed by service units that provide information and online services to students, such as the Testing Center. No matter how these workstations are situated and managed, they must be reasonably accessible.
