Web Accessibility

Boise State values inclusiveness

Boise State values inclusiveness and full access to educational opportunities and benefits.

For this reason the University takes continual steps to increase programmatic and physical access to people with disabilities, and incorporates standards for accessibility into information technologies used throughout the campus community, including the Boise State WordPress sites.
