Welcome to Realizing Open and Accessible Design

The ROAD Map

The Accessibility Committee (a/k/a the ROAD Team) was created to advance the principles of universal design campus-wide, focusing on web, electronic, and online accessibility. The ROAD Team works to build awareness of the need for accessible web content, to establish guidelines for accessible web content, and to provide the resources needed to achieve campus-wide accessible web content.

The LSC Accessibility Statement

The ROAD Team developed an accessibility statement that will soon appear on all LSC web pages:

Lake Superior College (LSC) is committed to providing all people with equal access to its electronic and information technologies. We continually refine our website and LSC-managed online content in an effort to conform to accessibility standards and to provide our online information in an accessible format. LSC continually reviews and updates its website features to ensure compliance with current and future accessibility standards.

All current information on LSC’s website is fully accessible. Some older information may not yet be updated. In addition, the LSC website may contain links to non-LSC publications or external websites. These links are provided in an effort to make additional information available to our visitors, but LSC cannot guarantee the accessibility of these resources.

If you are having accessibility issues, please contact us using our Website Accessibility Report Form. A member of our Web Accessibility Complaint Response Team will contact you within [tbd] business days.

ROAD Team Contact Information

Accessibility Matters at LSC

To Our Students: Accessible design means that all aspects of the educational experience empower our students to receive a quality educational experience. Learners are offered a full and equal opportunity to learn in an atmosphere that accommodates a wide range of individual preferences and abilities. All students benefit from accessible design.

To Our Faculty and Staff: Anyone who produces or distributes electronic communications plays an important role in providing a suitable learning environment for all students.   Accessible design removes barriers to student success from all aspects of the education experience, including course selection, registration, financial aid, and campus life. High accessibility standards foster student success and boost student confidence.

To LSC: Accessible design fosters an educational environment that is welcoming, inclusive, and diverse. Following accessible design principles demonstrates that LSC is committed to accessible and lifelong learning opportunities for all. Accessible design reflects our institutional mission and values.

Formal Mission:  The Accessibility Team is committed to advancing, supporting, and educating the campus community about the principles of Universal Design, focusing on web, electronic, and online accessibility.
