East Stroudsburg University's web content and web-based services must be accessibible to all Warriors, regardless of ability.
Because all campus departments and offices may need to create or provide accessible web content, the ICT Accessibility Task Force recommends the following training, resources, tools, and support to ESU content creators.
ESU offers training to all staff, faculty or students creating web content.
- Primary ESU WebsiteUniversity Relations offers training for web stewards, including accessibility standards, on a monthly basis during the academic year. Please email Steve LaBadie for the next training date.
