Mission Statement

Chico State believes in providing access to its diverse student, employee, and community populations. The Office of Accessible Technology and Services (OATS) works with staff, faculty, students, administrators, and community members to ensure that Section 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act and CSU ATI standards are met in all aspects of the university.  We dedicate ourselves to seeing out the vision of these standards through training, service and education.


The CSU's Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI) implementation approach is driven by the following principles:

Technology accessibility is an institution-wide responsibility that requires commitment and involvement from leadership across the enterprise.

Technology access for individuals with disabilities must provide comparable functionality, affordability, and timeliness and should be delivered in as seamless a manner as possible.

The implementation of Universal Design principles should reduce the need for, and costs associated with, individual accommodations for inaccessible technology products.


The Accessible Technology Center

OATS will be staffing the ATC on the first floor of Meriam Library from 12-5 Monday through Friday.
