Breadcrumb TourArchived: Living Out Our Commitment to Accessibility

Last Updated: 12/27/2017

As an educational institution dedicated to educating the next generation of leaders, advancing knowledge to improve lives, and enhancing the culture of our state, nation and world, CU Boulder is committed to making our digital environments more inclusive and accessible for everyone.

Toward these ends, our campus has created a policy, Accessibility of Information and Communication Technology, and also drafted standards for the accessibility of campus information and communication technology (ICT). The intent of these documents is to create digital accessibility standards and practices for the campus community.

The Office of Information Technology continues to develop accessibility considerations for CU Boulder’s most commonly used teaching and learning technologies. On the Accessibility Resources page you can find guidelines for Desire2Learn, Google Apps, Microsoft Office 365, and more. Also you will find resources on how to create accessible PDFs, Microsoft Office documents and universally designed syllabus resources. This Accessibility Resources page is being continuously updated as new resources are developed.

On the Accessible Technology website, you will also find links to campus accessibility support services designed to assist you with building accessible websites, arranging for accommodations for students, reporting accessibility issues related to technology, and more.

If you ever have questions about campus IT accessibility issues, or wish to report accessibility issues related to technology, please contact the IT Service Center at or call 303-735-4357 (5-HELP from a campus phone).
