Title II Rule on Digital Accessibility

On April 24, 2024, the Department of Justice (DOJ) published a new rule on digital accessibility under Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This rule requires the University’s web content, including academic course content, to be accessible by April 24, 2026.

Accessibility is our Shared Responsibility

The work in front of us is immense as everything the University does includes web content. The scope covers medicine, research, academic courses, and all services and programs we deliver to our internal and external communities. Complying with the new rule will require collaboration and partnership to ensure websites, documents, digital tools, and other electronic content are readily usable by all.

The Office of the ADA Coordinator is Coordinating Efforts  

ADA Office staff are working with University partners and coordinating University-wide efforts to create a detailed plan for compliance with timelines for action that will lead the University’s work and priorities. We are working to establish effective infrastructure and expectations, and build our resources to reach the compliance deadline and beyond.
