Our Accessibility Commitment
"‘Accessible’ means a person with a disability is afforded the opportunity to acquire the same information, engage in the same interactions, and enjoy the same services as a person without a disability in an equally effective and equally integrated manner, with substantially equivalent ease of use.” (US-DOJ Resolution Agreement. 11-11-6002)
The University of Maine System and its University Services: Information Technology (US:IT) group is committed to ensuring the accessibility of its systems and services to persons with disabilities. Please let us know if you experience an accessibility issue with any of our systems or services. If you are a student please also contact your Campus Disability Services Provider to discuss the need for any accommodations.

Integrating Accessibility Into Your Work
