Website Accessibility

Wiley College is committed to providing electronic content and information that is accessible to everyone, including those with disabilities. The College will adopt WCAG 2.0 Level AA as the standard for web content. By following the Four Principles of Accessibility, the Wiley will create and provide content that is Perceivable, Operable, Understandable, and Robust.

With this policy, Wiley requires all college departments to adhere to the Web Accessibility Standards, and promote awareness of this Policy to all members of the College community, particularly those in roles that are responsible for creating, selecting, or maintaining electronic content and applications. Resources such as Google’s Introduction to Web Accessibility will be provided to Wiley content providers/developers to ensure a seamless transition of information to site administrators.

Wiley College identifies the Assoc. Director of Special Projects in addition to the Information Technology (I.T.) department as the Web Accessibility Coordination Team with the authority to coordinate, implement, and audit the Web Accessibility Policy on an ongoing basis. These individuals will conduct regular website accessibility audits (with assistance if necessary) to ensure the website pushes to meet WCAG 2.0 Level AA. Portions of the site that do not meet the standards must be documented and address accordingly.

Prospective students, current students, faculty, staff and visitors may report violations of the Web Accessibility standards through the standard college grievance process as well as report the violation to the Wiley Web Accessibility Coordination Team, via the online Website Issues/Feedback form, or directly.

Wiley College Vice Presidents are responsible for facilitating and ensuring implementation of this policy within their respective departments. The Wiley Web Accessibility Coordination Team is responsible for issuing and updating any requirements, standards or guidelines that support this policy and shall facilitate regular communication to the College whenever necessary.
