Accessibility and UDL


It is the policy of the CSU to make information technology resources and services accessible to all CSU students, faculty, staff and the general public regardless of disability. Part of a quality course is making sure that all students have equal access to the content and experiences necessary to succeed. As such, the CSU has developed a professional development websiteOpens in new window related to instructional materials accessibility.

In addition to technical accessibility, Universal Design for Learning is an educational framework based on research in the learning sciences that guides the development of flexible learning environments that can accommodate individual learning differences. Through funding from the U.S. Department of Education and California State University, UDL-UniverseOpens in new window  is a one-stop portal for UDL and faculty development resources.

OET offers a certificate program in Accessible Instructional Materials to help faculty understand and create flexible learning resources to accommodate students with disabilities.
