Digital Accessibility at the University of Iowa

The University of Iowa embraces the values of inclusion and fairness. For IT staff, this means a commitment to providing all students with access to high-quality information technology services and products, designed to support each individual’s pursuit of academic and personal success.

Accessible IT is the goal of a managed process made up of many intentional design and development decisions, based on real-world practice, institutional policy, public standards, and awareness of the diversity of user experience.  It is achieved through designing, developing, purchasing, implementing, and supporting systems that provide an equivalent user experience to all eligible users, regardless of ability or access method.
