EITA Workgroup

The Electronic Information Technology Accessibility Workgroup compiles and maintains data to track compliance with this policy and makes recommendations for improvements, including proposals for new programs, initiatives or technology purchases.

Strategic Proposal

  • Submits proposals for EITA improvements that are outside of the operational authority of members of this work group to the Vice Presidents for approval and institutional funding. 
  • Reviews requests for exemptions to the EITA policy and makes recommendations to the Director of Computing and Communications regarding the approval or denial of purchase requisitions that fail to meet the intent of the EITA policy.
  • Serves as a clearinghouse for information about equally accessible electronic and information technology, universal design in higher education, and assistive technology for people with disabilities.
  • Serves as an advisory group for faculty and staff professional development in electronic and information technology accessibility, universal design in higher education, and assistive technology for people with disabilities.

Current Activities

We will meet with support staff during winter quarter of 2017 to roll out the new guidelines to the campus community.
