Muhlenberg College is developing web page accessibility guidelines to ensure all individuals will have access to College web resources. This endeavor is made possible by a grant appropriation* presented by Senator Arlen Specter. The basis for this effort is derived from the recommendations developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Due to the extensive number of pages on the Muhlenberg College website, a combined effort of significant scale is necessary. To facilitate this plan, the implementation of these guidelines will be in phases. Relevant training of college webmasters will be available upon request, throughout the academic year.
