Equal access

The Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) office facilitates accommodations and services to students with disabilities that ensure equal access to university programs, services and activities.

UW-Eau Claire is committed to providing all students with accessible educational opportunities. UW-Eau Claire follows UW System Policy, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA).

Disability Awareness Month Faculty and Staff Recognition Reception

The Services for Students with Disabilities office has a history of giving awards that recognize deserving individuals and departments at UWEC who have reached out to students with disabilities in unique, caring, and creative ways.  A recognition event to honor the award recipients is being planned for October during Disability Awareness Month, for Tuesday, October 29 at 1:00 pm in Centennial Hall Room 3314.  In the past, the event lasted approximately 1 hour. 

Please join us to hear from our students, honor our colleagues, and celebrate Disability Awareness Month!
