Access Specialists

Each of our Access Specialists work with students and faculty from specific academic colleges/departments. Your department's Access Specialist is available to you for consultation, both on addressing individual student situations and implenting inclusive curricullar design. 

Drop-in Consults for students, faculty, staff and guests can be conducted via phone or in person for Autumn 2022. Some staff may visit with you virtually even if you are on site if they are working remotely that day.
