Accessibility Technology Initiative at SDSU

The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) provides that no qualified individual with a disability be denied access to or participation in services, programs, and activities at San Diego State University. This act applies to virtually all aspects of campus activities, including employment, student programming, and services provided to the campus community. As part of the university’s campus-wide ADA compliance program, this Web page has been developed to link you with the many ADA and disability-related resources on campus.

It is the policy of the California State University to make information technology resources and services accessible to all CSU students, faculty, staff, and the general public regardless of disability status. CSU Executive Order 926, which went into effect on January 1, 2005, establishes the policy, specifies campus responsibilities, and offers supplemental guidance to ensure that the proper and integrated actions of each campus are effectively mobilized to comply with the policy and law.
