As part of our commitment to providing access to higher education for all members of our diverse community, DVC has a responsibility to post information in formats that reduce barriers to accessibility. DVC must also comply with policies and regulations governing taxpayer-funded institutions related to the provisions of Section 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.
All contributors and approvers are required to take the Web Accessibility training provided by DSS and ensure all content on their assigned pages is fully compliant with the law. Ongoing drop-in support is available if you aren't sure how to make accessible content through the Digital Learning Lab.
Because inaccessible content is inequitable and poses a serious liability for the college, web contributors who post content that is not accessible may have their web access suspended until further training is completed.
