TTUHSC is committed to ensuring equal access to web based information and services for all constituencies as well as complying with standards outlined within the Texas Administrative Code, Title 1, Part 10, Chapter 206 State Web Sites and The Federal Government Section 508 standards.
We also endorse the guidelines of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) as the standard for World Wide Web accessibility and have developed institutional web site publishing standards. These standards are available for review at http://www.ttuhsc.edu/it/policy/web.aspx. Also, to improve the accessibility of the TTUHSC web sites we currently use various tools for site validation and tools available through the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
