Having content that is compliant to accessibility standards not only follows Official Campus Policy, but also aligns with CSUSM culture and is backed by Federal and State laws. Accessible content increases the learning experience for people of all abilities
CSUSM is committed to ensuring that the campus web environment is accessible to everyone, especially those with disabilities. The CSUSM website aims to follow the WCAG 2.1 level AA standards and the Accessibility Team wants to know if any accessible content is encountered. As a community, we work together to address the usability and accessibility of the websites contained within CSUSM’s web environment.
Students, faculty, staff, and general site users can anonymously report accessibility
issues that are encountered within university-affiliated websites.
Please report any accessibility issues experienced or difficulty accessing the content on any CSUSM site.
