Access Center


Faculty Liaisons 2019 - 2020

The Access Center Faculty Liaison Working Group is comprised of faculty, instructors, and teaching assistants from WSU who have been identified as providing an inclusive environment for students in their courses.  Faculty liaisons meet once a month to share concerns, observations, and to help the Access Center clarify, hone and update program procedures and develop useful faculty instructional materials. Through this initiative, the Access Center’s goals are to strengthen faculty partnerships and  to create a campus learning environment that embraces equal access and opportunity by removing barriers through the use of universal design principles.
