Accessible Technology Initiative
In 2006-2007 the Chancellor’s office created the Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI) in response to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The CSU is now committed to making all course ma¬terials and technology used by students, faculty, staff and the public, accessible. At the faculty level, this requirement translates into a commitment that all instructional course materials will be made accessible by Fall 2012.

What Do We Need to Do Right Away?
Existing course content should be accessible at the point of course redesign, or when a student with a disability enrolls in the course.
New courses and new course content, including instructional materials, instructional web sites and new purchases, will be designed and authored in a manner that incorporates accessibility.
What has to be in place by 2012?
All course materials in all courses will be made accessible. All websites in the CSU including sites used in an instructional context must be accessible.
