Skidmore strives to ensure that all students and employees have equal access to participate in and benefit from college services and activities provided through electronic and information technology (EIT).
What exactly is EIT accessibility? One way to think about it is as a way to allow everyone, including but not limited to those with a disability, equal access to digital information. There are many types of disabilities that might make certain content more difficult to consume, and not everyone with a disability is comfortable disclosing that information to the college. As such, it is our responsibility to consider how accessible the content we create on the college website, in theSpring, and elsewhere, is to those who will be attempting to access it. To that aim, this page covers the resources available to those wanting to ensure the digital content they create is fully accessible, as well as those seeking resources to improve their access to information.
