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 Spring 2023. Drop-in hours are Monday-Friday from 10a-1p and 2p-4p. Some staff may visit with you virtually even if you are on site if they are working remotely that day.
