Digital Accessibility

“The power of the Web is in its universality. Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect.” – Tim Berners-Lee

Willamette University is committed to accessibility and making its website and digital content accessible to all users, including individuals with disabilities.

What is Digital Accessibility?

Digital accessibility means creating digital content and applications that can be used by a wide range of users, including those who have visual, auditory, motor or cognitive disabilities. Creating digital accessible content aligns with Willamette’s mission “Not unto ourselves alone” and promotes diversity and inclusion throughout our community.

Websites and applications that are coded for accessibility tend to be more compliant with web standards, therefore improving usability and search engine optimizations for everyone.

To learn more about what goes into web accessibility, we have digital accessibility guidelines available explaining what makes up each part of an accessible web page.
