OFFICE OF DISABILITY SERVICES

FACULTY AND STAFF

At Buffalo State College, there is a serious commitment to meeting the guidelines for accessibility on the World Wide Web and in the use of electronic media and their applications to all facets of education. Online courses, Project Connect classrooms, ANGEL classes, and distance learning are terms we are fluent in using here – concepts completely out of the experience of faculty and students 15 years ago.

The FAST Center trains us to make our web sites for classes accessible, and no web sites can be used for classes unless they meet the ADA’s Section 508 mandates. We were one of the first colleges in the SUNY system to establish this standard, and the personnel who work there enforce this as part of the course materials and design.
