Accessibility Capability Maturity Model (ACMM)

What is the ACMM?

The California Community Colleges Accessibility Center is proud to introduce the Accessibility Capability Maturity Model (ACMM), which takes the broad concept of accessibility and breaks it down into achievable goals and milestones so colleges and districts can drive accessibility forward. The ACMM mitigates risk through iterative improvement and proactively addresses Office of Civil Rights (OCR) settlement requirements in a manageable timeline based on campus resources. The ACMM also aligns with Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility efforts outlined in the CCC Vision for Success.

ACMM Focus Areas

The ACMM consists of 10 goals and associated milestones that integrate accessibility into existing business processes in the following focus areas:

  • Governance
  • Processes
    • Procurement of Information and Communication Technology
    • Websites and Applications
    • Digital Content (Instructional Materials, Student & Employee Services)
    • Collaborative Efforts
  • Training and Professional Development
  • Culture and Communication

Timeline and Participation

The Accessibility Center is piloting the ACMM with selected colleges and districts in Fall 2023 and is seeking colleges/districts interested in implementation for 2024. Interested colleges/districts will need executive support for consideration. Executive support is generally considered at the Vice President level or higher.
