Carleton strives to be inclusive in all ways. Digital accessibility is a key part of that effort.
Designing and building digital content that can be used by everyone aligns with Carleton’s IDE plan goal to be an inclusive and equitable institution. This website provides a comprehensive overview of criteria, tools, trainings, and resources to further our efforts in promoting equal access to digital content and to improve the user experience for all, including persons with disabilities.
To ensure equitable access to our digital content, all College websites shall adhere to AA-level standards of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. Learn more about Carleton’s legal obligations.
