ADA Web Accessibility

ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Web Accessibility is an essential component in developing any web page to allow all audiences an equal opportunity to access content within the University's website. Ensuring access is not only a good business practice but for universities and government entities, it is also required by laws such as Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, Title II and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (29 U.S.C. 794d.) By providing accessible web pages the ADA Compliance representatives at the University of North Florida (UNF) may move towards fulfilling their commitment to create a culture of sensitivity for individuals with disabilities where inclusion is essential to contributing towards a society that eliminates exclusion and segregation. Providing web accessibility enhances interaction between the user and the information on our websites and helps to remove barriers for individuals with disabilities. The ADA Compliance presentations linked below are available as tools for you to use to comply with the rules and laws mentioned above for ADA compliance. Questions or comments regarding the presentations should be directed to Rocelia Gonzalez, Director ADA Compliance Office at rrgonz@unf.edu or (904) 620-2870.
