Make it accessible

UW-Madison is committed to ensuring our digital campus is accessible and free from barriers for all members of the university community. But what does that mean for you? This guide will answer some of your questions and point you to resources for ensuring accessible IT for all at UW-Madison.

Why is accessibility important?

It’s the right thing to do

The web is all about providing access, information, and opportunity to as many people as possible. It is only right, then, that the University community works to ensure that all can participate.

It’s our policy

The UW-Madison Web Accessibility Policy requires compliance with the Federal Rehabilitation Act’s Section 508, and looks to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 for guidance in meeting campus accessibility commitments.
