This University of Minnesota web site has been designed to maximize accessibilty for as many users as possible. Features to enhance accessibility include:

  • Making text scalable, which enables you to easily increase or decrease the text size as needed.

    To resize text, refer to your browser's View menu and look for options to make text larger or smaller.

  • Using Cascading Stylesheets (CSS) to separate information content from text and positioning styles. This enables you to turn off the stylesheet and view content hierarchically and without screen formatting.

    This also allows visitors who are using alternate browsing devices (such as PDAs), text-reader applications for accommodating visual impairments, or older browsers that do not support certain features of CSS, to obtain this web site's content in an organized and accessible manner.

    To turn off stylesheet formatting, refer to your browser's View menu and look for Page Style options where you can select No Style. This option is best supported by the Firefox (Mozilla) browser ( for both Windows and Macintosh operating systems.

  • Providing printer-friendly formatting. A print stylesheet omits site navigation and other screen media features when you print pages, which ensures that the page's content is not cropped by your printer. This also conserves ink and paper resources by not printing more than the information you need.
