California State University, Stanislaus is actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of the website and in doing so adheres to many of the available standards and guidelines. Although every effort is made to present fully accessible content on this website, a number of accessibility issues still need to be resolved. We are aware of the following issues and are working to address them:
- Uploaded images may not have text alternatives because we cannot ensure the quality of contributions
- Archived documents might not work with current assistive technologies because they use outdated technologies that do not support accessibility
- Video captioning
California State University, Stanislaus does not discriminate in its education and employment programs on the basis of religion, age, race, color, national origin, gender, marital or parental status, or disability and complies with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX Education Amendments of 1972, Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990.
In order to further our commitment to nondiscrimination, we are continuing to work on the website in order to ensure the site conforms to level Double-A World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0.
