Greetings and welcome to the Accessibility Center at UW Oshkosh!
Welcome to the Accessibility Center (AC), where we are committed to creating an inclusive and supportive environment for all students. Our mission is to ensure that every student, regardless of their abilities, has equal access to educational opportunities.
The AC plays a vital legal role in upholding the rights of students with disabilities, in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other relevant laws. We are here to advocate for your rights, providing guidance, accommodations, and resources to help you thrive academically and personally.
Our interactive process begins by working closely with each student to understand their unique needs and challenges. We believe in collaborative solutions, tailoring support to your specific requirements. Your input and feedback are essential, and we’re here to listen and learn from you.
We are your allies in navigating the educational journey, ensuring that you can fully engage with the learning process and reach your fullest potential.
We are here to support you every step of the way.
