News from Pennsylvania State University, New Web Policy to Affect all of Penn State’s Public Web Sites, gives a target date of August 15, 2005 for compliance to standards, guidelines, and accessibility. Major changes to the web policy were the result of consultation with the Faculty Senate, Web developers and designers, and administrators.
Penn State’s Policy AD54 Web Page Design and Image lists these changes and offers up additional resources and information. The Recommendations and Guidelines section outlines using current best practices and validation to standards. A Web Review Committee will monitor and review Penn State’s Web sites and Web pages for accessibility and standards compliance. To help with the change, Penn State offers up several resources including template options for content pages, tips and hints for creating accessible content, and contact methods for further help.
Congratulations to all those involved with the new policy changes at Penn State. You have addressed web standards and have outlined a plan for change.
