Posted in: Accessibility

Whereas the initial implementation of the University’s digital accessibility initiative focused on making instructional course content and Montclair.edu accessible, the initiative is now being extended to the administrative areas of the University. Specifically, three areas:Procurement, the Finance and Human Resources departments and Documents and forms that were not able to be made accessible during University Communications’ ongoing upgrade of our montclair.edu website. Over the next several months, the IT Division will work the Procurement Services department to strengthen areas of the University’s procurement process to include accessibility considerations where appropriate. In addition, outreach and training sessions will be conducted with key administrative functions to increase accessibility awareness and develop a plan for accommodating the accessibility needs of those who require access to HR and Finance related forms. Lastly, the IT Division will partner with Web Services to develop an inventory of all inaccessible documents that were not able to be migrated successfully.
