Accessibility at Yale
To report a disability-related accessibility issue on a Yale website or web application, please use the Accessibility Comments Form.
As part of Yale’s mission, Yale is committed to “the free exchange of ideas in an ethical, interdependent, and diverse community.” That diversity includes all people regardless of ability or disability.
Websites and web applications are integral to the university’s academic and administrative work. Yale is committed to making information, programs and activities on its websites and web applications accessible to people with disabilities through its Web Accessibility Policy.
The Web Accessibility Policy applies to websites and applications that conduct university business. Owners of such sites should be familiar with this policy and the Web Accessibility Procedure. The policy may also affect people in roles that work on university websites. People in roles that work on University websites and web applications should explore this website and take advantage of Yale’s accessibility best practices and trainings.
To meet the requirements of the policy, university websites should comply with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (“WCAG”) 2 Level AA. To see answers to common questions about accessibility, including how the policy may affect you, visit the Frequently Asked Questions page.
