University Policies

Access to the Web and other information technologies may be more critical for people with disabilities, who cannot easily access traditional information formats (e.g., print media by people with visual impairments; auditory media by people who are Deaf or hard of hearing; and people with mobility impairments who cannot hold print materials, pens/pencils or interact with other communications media). As an equal opportunity educator and employer, the University of Minnesota is committed to providing equal access to information and information technology. Several University of Minnesota policies address the reduction of barriers to information access and full inclusion in the university community for students, employees, guests and visitors —including those with disabilities.
