IT Accessibility Services and Resources

ECU is committed to a high standard of accessibility compliance

East Carolina University is committed to providing technology and educational resources, such as applications, computer labs, learning platforms, web pages and multimedia content, that comply with accessibility standards so all users can fully participate in our mission of learning, service and research.

By establishing an IT accessibility and compliance program and keeping up to date with current trends in educational technology and web development, ECU is addressing needs to ensure access. Further, we have formalized this commitment with the Information Technology Accessibility regulation approved September 2017.

The Department for Disability Support Services, ITCS and the IT Accessibility Committee have worked in partnership to research standard practices and compliance resources which we present here to assist you in creating accessible content.
