The UC Davis Electrical and Computer Engineering Outreach and Enrichment Committee strives to adhere to the web standards set by:
- The Federal Rehabilitation Section 508
- In 1998, Congress amended the Rehabilitation Act to require Federal agencies to make their electronic and information technology accessible to people with disabilities. Inaccessible technology interferes with an individual’s ability to obtain and use information quickly and easily. Section 508 was enacted to eliminate barriers in information technology, to make available new opportunities for people with disabilities, and to encourage development of technologies that will help achieve these goals. The law applies to all Federal agencies when they develop, procure, maintain, or use electronic and information technology. Under Section 508, agencies must give disabled employees and members of the public access to information that is comparable to the access available to others.
Visit the Federal Rehabilitation Section 508 website for more information.
- The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C)
- W3C primarily pursues its mission through the creation of Web standards and guidelines. Since 1994, W3C has published more than 110 such standards, called W3C Recommendations. W3C also engages in education and outreach, develops software, and serves as an open forum for discussion about the Web. In order for the Web to reach its full potential, the most fundamental Web technologies must be compatible with one another and allow any hardware and software used to access the Web to work together. W3C refers to this goal as “Web interoperability.” By publishing open (non-proprietary) standards for Web languages and protocols, W3C seeks to avoid market fragmentation and thus Web fragmentation.

- The University of California, Davis
- These standards define the UC Davis policy for the use of electronic communication (EC) resources for World Wide Web communications and applications. This section supplements Sections 310-23 and 310-24, Electronic Communications Policy, and applies to all Web pages and Web-based services that use University-owned or -operated electronic communication resources. UCDHS Web sites are also subject to the policies defined in UCDHS Hospital Policies and Procedures Sections 1310, 1312, and 1318.
