Web and Digital Media Accessibility Policy Statement

Molloy College has a long tradition of fostering a culture and community centered on study and learning. As an educational institution, we have included service and community as core components of our mission. An essential part of each of these components is our ability to provide easy access to information. This not only allows our academic community to make informed decisions, but also allows them to gain a broader, more dynamic perspective of their communities, their faith, and their world. It's why we are committed to providing every student and faculty member, as well as the entire academic and educational community, with the ability to access all content published on any digital platform.

To achieve this goal, Molloy College is dedicated to setting up procedures for the creation and distribution of all online content that will follow WC3's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, level AA conformance or updated equivalents of these guidelines. These guidelines align with the intent of several United States federal laws including the Americans with Disabilities Act, the refreshed Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, and other laws.

Molloy College's website and digital accessibility policy will cover all digital content, including web pages, templates, multimedia (such as photos, audio, and video), and social media. However, in order to optimize this process in a timely manner, we will implement these changes in stages, over time, by first focusing on the most frequently visited web pages on the Molloy College website. Additionally, we will provide our staff with ADA compliance training and resources that will allow us to facilitate making necessary changes as quickly and efficiently as possible.
