During a recent Educause session on website accessibility, Oregon State University ranked 5th out of 135 universities. We’ve moved up from the middle of the pack, and this is certainly a sign that we’re heading it the right direction.
Having a committed and knowledgable team at Disability Access Services and the Office of Equity and Inclusion is a big reason we’ve been doing so well. Also, commitment from IT and Central Web Services has also helped move this forward. Web accessibility isn’t the domain of one department, and to do it well you need collaboration across campus communications, IT and administration. We’re lucky to have a great team.
