What is Accessibility?
Engineering Communications is committed to making all information developed, maintained, distributed and procured by our department accessible to everyone, including those with disabilities.
Texas A&M University has a long-standing tradition of providing equal access and opportunities to discover, communicate and apply knowledge and abilities. As part of our university’s commitment to enrichment and diversity, it’s essential that everyone have access to information resources developed, maintained, distributed and procured by us. With this in mind, accessibility should be a priority for all of us, regardless of our roles on campus.
Why Accessibility is Important
Accessibility is important because:
- It’s the right thing to do. It supports our long-standing tradition of inclusiveness and promotes a key Texas A&M mission of diversity.
- It makes sense. As an institution, it allows us to reach more individuals with our teaching and learning initiatives, with our research findings and with the real-life applications associated with each of them.
- It’s required by law. As a state-supported institution, as well as one that receives federal funding for grants and initiatives, our university is required to provide accessible content.
