Accessibility at Western

"For people without disabilities technology makes things easier. For people with disabilities technology makes things possible."

IBM Training Manual, 1991

Incorporating accessibility into Western Washington University’s culture is not only the right thing to do, but also provides many benefits to the campus community. Accessible technologies allow all members of the university to learn, work, and contribute in their own way.

We want to fix it—let us know.
