Faculty and Academic Departments
Will show only captioned media in the classroom and will assign only captioned media as a course requirement. If a live online event that does not provide accessible alternative content is spontaneously available and is presented in the classroom, the instructor will make every effort to provide an alternative format of the content on request.
Faculty utilizing media from their own personal or departmental collections (original or commercial productions) are responsible for ensuring it is captioned. In the case of commercially produced videos, appropriate public performance rights and licenses must be available for viewing at the College.
Faculty requesting the installation of generally publicly licensed software to be used as a course requirement must make every effort to provide an alternative format of the software, if possible, upon request.
Assistance with meeting these needs will be available through Library and Technology services.
Library and Technology Services
Will advise and assist faculty in instructional design of accessible course content.
Will assist users in obtaining accessibility support for third party electronic resources.
Will assist faculty in confirming accessibility of materials prior to purchase and/or classroom use.
Will review purchases of new media, software, and electronic resources to ensure accessibility compliance.
Will maintain a permanent collection of accessible electronic texts and media resources that are available for faculty, staff, and student use.
Will secure all current VPAT documents for software installed and maintained on YCP-owned machines.
Will pursue permissions and maintain records for captioning and the digitization of legacy copyrighted resources.
Student Accessibility Services
Will work with faculty and LTS to resolve unique or one-time needs of individual students on a case by case basis.
While YCP will make every effort to provide accessible information resources, it remains the student’s responsibility to make faculty, Library and Technology Services, or Student Accessibility Services aware when an information resource is not accessible and an accommodation is needed to make use of the resource.
Administrative Offices and Employees
Job-specific accessibility needs of individual employees will be addressed on a case by case basis by supervisors in consultation with Library and Technology Services and the Director of Disability Support Services.
