Accommodations at WWU

In compliance with the American with Disabilities Act and the Rehabilitation Act of 1974, Western Washington University provides reasonable accommodations for all qualified faculty, staff and students with disabilities.

It is the policy of Western Washington University to provide reasonable accommodation to the known physical or mental limitations of otherwise qualified individuals except where some accommodation would impose undue hardship on the institution. The Accommodating Persons with Disability policy is available on WWU web and in hard copy at the Equal Opportunity Office in Old Main 345 or the Human Resources Office.

The ADA Coordinator at WWU, Dr. Sue Guenter-Schlesinger, is available to assist the campus community in assuring that the University is in compliance with the American with Disabilities Act. She can be reached in Old Main 345, by phone at 360-650-3307, or at Washington Relay: 711.

The ADA Coordinator also serves as the Chair of the University's Disability Advisory Committee (DAC). The members of the DAC work collegially with representatives across campus to strategically identify areas requiring ADA compliance and to proactively address them.
