English and Journalism


Web accessibility is a top priority for the Department of English & Journalism.


We want to make this site accessible to everyone. To that end, we ask you to report accessibility problems or suggest improvements. Please contact the Dept. of English & Journalism by phone (309-298-1103), email (english1@wiu.edu) or by postal mail: Department of English & Journalism, Western Illinois University, 1 University Circle, Macomb, IL 61455. If we can’t solve your problem, we’ll provide site content in a format you can use.


We have designed this site with the hopes of meeting the Illinois Information Technology Accessibility Act (IITAA) guidelines. Because these standards are based on Section 508 and the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), we believe our site will meet or exceed those guidelines.
