Web Accessibility

Cal Poly Humboldt is committed to ensuring that the campus web is accessible to everyone. As a community, we work together to address the usability and accessibility of the websites contained within our web environment.

Our goal is that all campus websites meet the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0 AA). All campus and community members play a part in creating accessible, usable information.

Campus Web Accessibility Statement

Marketing and Communications is continually working to create a more accessible framework for campus sites in OpenHSU. The framework has been built using code compliant with W3c standards for HTML and CSS.

The accessibility of the content within those sites is the responsibility of site owners and content maintainers. Campus users are not permitted to upload inaccessible content to any campus website—this includes inaccessible PDFs and Word documents, uncaptioned videos, or graphics with insufficient contrast, among other things.

Campus sites are automatically checked periodically, and reports are sent to website owners and content maintainers. Key web pages are manually checked every year.

Sites outside of the OpenHSU must adhere to the same guidelines and standards as the campus web.

We are dedicated to continual improvement. Please Report an Accessibility Issue if you experience any difficulty accessing the content on any Cal Poly Humboldt site.
