  • Original CSU Instructional Materials Accessibility Planning page (timeline, reporting, FAQ's, tools and resources)
  • Per ATI guidance, the CSUMB instructional materials accessibility plan should be evaluated and revised as needed on a yearly basis or as warranted.


The guiding principles for CSUMB Instructional Materials Accessibility are:

  • Accommodation: for students and faculty through the services of Student Disability Resources (SDR), the Center for Academic Technologies (CAT), and actions by faculty and staff; third-party tools will also be procured and enhanced as they become available.
  • Proactive: professional development and support through the CSU, SDR, CAT, and TLA
  • Inclusiveness: shared responsibilities and benefits for students, faculty, administration, and external publishers
  • Accountability: action, transparency

Identify issues and challenges related to instructional materials.

Develop a workflow which fits within the timeline as specified in EO 1111 which addresses:

  • Faculty workload
