Our Mission

Ƶ is dedicated to providing the best web experience possible to all users. We use Siteimprove to regularly scan for accessibility issues and content that does not conform to Section 508, for accessibility for the disabled. If you find content or a page which is not compliant, please let us know with an email to webmaster@brenau.edu.

Legal Requirements

Ƶ is required by federal law to provide access to its programs and services to all qualified individuals. A U.S. Department of Justice Policy Ruling on September 9, 1996 confirmed that the ADA applies to Internet web pages. Most recently, Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, as amended by the Workforce Investment Act of 1998, established federally recognized standards on web accessibility – see .

These laws prevent state institutions from constructing buildings with no wheelchair access, and similarly, they require universities to create web sites that are accessible to persons who utilize screen readers to navigate the internet, can not hear audio content, are unable to use a mouse, etc.
