IT Accessibility

The accessibility of content and processes in the information technology environment is an important shared concern for the Big Ten Academic Alliance Chief Information Officers (CIOs).  The Big Ten Academic Alliance CIOs wish to take practical steps to maximize accessibility of IT resources in the context of maximizing the quality and performance of the respective institution's instructional, research, creative, and outreach and engagement programs and efforts.  The Big Ten Academic Alliance CIOs recognize that these desires require thoughtful management through a complicated set of ever-evolving challenges and opportunities, including technical, legal, ethical, pedagogic, communications, business, and budgetary domains, to name only a few.  The Big Ten Academic Alliance CIOs also recognize that their individual institutional efforts may be usefully aided by joint sharing of concerns and effective practices by which to address them.  To that extent, the Big Ten Academic Alliance CIOs have charged the IT Accessibility Group with work in various areas.
