"...This policy applies to all University Web pages used to conduct core University business or academic activities."

Policy AD-25: Video Captioning and Accessibility

In addition to Policy AD-69, Policy AD-25 "Video Productions" specifies that promotional videos should also comply with accessibility guidelines.
