The Assistive Technology Resource Center ensures equal access to technology and electronic information for Colorado State University students and employees. Access to information by all members of its learning community is implicit in Colorado State University's mission as a land grant institution of higher education. To this effect, university web resources should be deployed in a manner that ensures that all members of our community, including persons with disabilities, have access to university information.
