Compliance

Accessibility Compliance at California State University, Dominguez Hills 

In furtherance of California State University, Dominguez Hill’s overall mission of accessibility and commitment to excellence through diversity, equity and inclusion, DH strives to ensure that its information and communication technology is accessible to everyone. 

Laws, Policy and Executive Orders 

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (504) require that qualified individuals be provided equal access to programs, services, and activities. California Government Code 11135 applies Section 508 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act, as amended in 1998, to state entities and to the California State University (CSU) system. Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act was enacted to eliminate barriers in information technology, to make new opportunities available to people with disabilities and to encourage development of technologies that will help achieve these goals. The California State University system statement on accessibility is articulated in Executive Order 1111. 

Accessible Technology Initiative 

The CSU Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI) is the effort by the CSU system to ensure that information and communication technology is accessible to all students, faculty, staff, and the wider community. "Accessible" means a person with a disability is afforded the opportunity to acquire the same information, engage in the same interactions, and enjoy the same services as a person without a disability in an equally effective and equally integrated manner, with substantially equivalent ease of use. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) includes websites, web applications, digital signage and kiosks, software and hardware, multimedia such as video, virtual and augmentative reality, electronic documents, and digital presentations.  

Principles 

The CSU's ATI implementation approach is driven by the following principles: 

  • Technology accessibility is an institution-wide responsibility that requires commitment and involvement from leadership across the enterprise. 
  • Technology access for individuals with disabilities must provide comparable functionality, affordability, and timeliness and should be delivered in as seamless a manner as possible. 
  • The implementation of Universal Design principles should reduce the need for, and costs associated with, individual accommodations for inaccessible technology products. 

CSUDH’s ATI executive sponsors and ATI steering committee chairs are Chris Manriquez and Michael E. Spagna.  

Per Coded Memorandum AA-2013-03, the ATI Steering Committee and its sub-committees and working groups provide governance for the ATI at CSUDH. The ATI Steering committee regularly meets two times each year and additionally as needed. Meetings are open to public comment and participation. 

The ATI Coordinator is Stephen Alexander Marositz. Contact us at ati@csudh.edu for more information about CSUDH’s ATI implementation approach or to have items added to the ATI steering committee agenda.
