The University Policy Office announces the issuance of University Policy 5.12, Web Accessibility Standards. This policy is being issued in interim form, to allow for completion of the final steps of the university’s formal policy process, which includes final stakeholder review and incorporation of feedback. An interim policy has the full authority of a finalized policy.
This policy has been developed as a result of recent resolutions by the University Assemblies and the resulting Web Accessibility Working Group established by President Pollack. Intended to govern new websites, web content, and web applications at Cornell, this policy will help the university’s efforts to achieve compliance with federal law and meet or surpass.
