Section 720 - Accessible Technology Policy

Lower Columbia College provides equal opportunity to its educational and administrative services, programs, and activities in accordance with federal and state law. Equal opportunity includes appropriate and effective access to technology for students, employees, and community members.

This policy applies to the procurement, development and implementation of instructional, administrative, and communications technologies and content, unless it creates an undue burden on the college. It encompasses, but is not limited to, college websites, learning management tools, student information systems, training materials, instructional materials and assessment tools.

Ensuring equal and effective electronic and information technology access is the responsibility of all college administrators, faculty, and staff.
