Accessible Technology Initiative

From 2006 to 2007 the CSU Chancellor’s Office created the Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI) in response to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to make instructional material accessible for all students, faculty, staff, and the public. This encompasses all technology products used to deliver academic programs and services, student services, information technology services, and auxiliary programs and services.
The CSU's Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI) implementation approach is driven by the following principles:
  • Accessible technology is an institution-wide responsibility that requires commitment and involvement from leadership across the CSU.
  • Technology access for individuals with disabilities must provide comparable functionality, affordability, and timeliness and should be delivered in as seamless a manner as possible.
  • The implementation of universal design principles should reduce the need for, and costs associated with, individual accommodations for inaccessible technology products.
The Assistive Technology Services Office is here to support that effort by providing assistive technology resources to support access to course material, and any programs or services offered by the University.
