Pepperdine University strives to follow WCAG 2.1 AA compliance standards. Learn more about Pepperdine's Web Accessibility Policy
Pepperdine University's commitment to an inclusive community necessitates an accessible web enterprise and information technology. All web editors are required to take and pass the university's web accessibility training module to ensure they understand the basic concepts of accessibility and how to abide by them.
The training process is as follows:
- All OU users will be required to complete and pass the training to gain or keep their web editing access. Each year, they will be re-enrolled in the course to maintain their access.
- Enrolled users will be sent reminders to complete the training by a set due date.
- If a user does not take the accessibility training during the allotted timeframe then their access will be suspended.
- If a user fails the training module they will be required to take it again. If they don't pass their second attempt, their supervisor will be contacted and their access suspended.
Please contact Kimberly Robison for any questions about the training and to request to be enrolled in the Web Accessibility Training course.
