Our Policy & Commitment
At Nova Southeastern University (“NSU”) Art Museum, we are committed to accessibility, diversity and inclusion. We believe all of our students, faculty, staff and constituents should be able to have equal and effective access to our core website, smartphone apps and other websites/applications and digital content. In doing so, NSU Art Museum has a goal to comply with applicable accessibility regulations including the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act and the 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act (CVAA).
Digital Accessibility Statement
Our target accessibility standard is the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level A and Level AA. To meet this standard, we have dedicated resources to our digital accessibility compliance effort, including those who coordinate the effort, and those responsible for designing, developing and testing our core website, smartphone apps and other websites and digital content. We also work to ensure that our support documentation and services meet accessibility requirements. We collaborate with advocacy groups, education partners and vendors to identify areas that need improvement.
Accessibility Features of this Website
Here are some of the items we’ve addressed to make sure www.nsuartmusuem.org meets our target accessibility standard:
- Site Structure: We use appropriate headings, lists, paragraphs and other formatting features, such as the Accessible Rich Internet Applications (ARIA) specification, so that students, faculty, staff and constituents can easily use the site with assistive technology.
- Text Equivalents: We are working to ensure all of our images and multimedia are fully accessible through alternative text, captions and transcripts.
- Keyboard Access: We try to ensure that students, faculty, staff and constituents can access our website using only a keyboard.
- Consistency: We try to employ a consistent design approach for our core website, smartphone apps and other websites and digital content to help make it easier for everyone to access content, features and functionality.
