Our Standards

Our team is proud of its role in setting and meeting Yale Standards for usability, accessibility, and identity. With each project, we achieve a more open and accessible Yale.

Accessibility Guidelines

We are guided by the World Wide Consortium and ADA Standards for WCAG compliance and accessible design. Our team applies WCAG 2.0 Level AA guidelines in the creation of websites. We are committed to remediating any accessibility challenges in the websites we build. We verify accessibility using several methods including automatic tools, manual checks, and testing with blind users.

Identity Guidelines

We’re committed to upholding Yale’s graphic identity, with guidance by the Office of the University Printer
