Access Center

About Us

The Access Center provides accommodations and services to incoming and current WSU students with disabilities, psychological or medical conditions, or temporary injuries that limit their access to the educational environment. Some examples of the accommodations and services we provide are testing accommodations (reduced distraction testing environment, extended time, etc.), note-taking, alternative print media, and time management or organizational skill development.

Mission Statement

The Access Center supports the self-determination and development of students with disabilities' through removing barriers to academic success, promoting self-advocacy and providing support to foster student learning and engagement in all opportunities available at the university.  The Access Center will achieve this mission by adhering to our core values as we collaborate with students, faculty and the greater campus community. 

Vision

The Access Center collaborates with the institution's diverse community to ensure that all aspects of campus life—learning, working and living –are universally accessible.  The center provides the institution with resources, education and direct services in order that people with disabilities may have a greater opportunity to realize social justice and achieve equity.
