AccessAbility Services

Faculty and Staff Resources

The Office of AccessAbility Services (AAS) is pleased to have you as a Western Connecticut State University (WCSU) faculty and/or staff member. AAS works individually with all students who have self-identified to AAS and have a documented disability to determine appropriate accommodations based on their particular needs. Accommodations are designed to level the playing field for students with disabilities while maintaining the integrity and standards of our academic programs. During the fall and spring semesters, AAS serves more than 400 students with various disabilities, including but not limited to, students with learning disabilities, visual impairments, hearing impairments, psychiatric/psychological impairments, physical impairments, and other health related impairments.

Achieving full participation and integration of students with disabilities requires the cooperative efforts of all departments, their faculty and staff, and AAS at WCSU. As a WCSU faculty and/or staff member, you play a vital role in promoting access for students with disabilities.  

The information available on this website is intended to provide more in-depth information in working with AAS and students with disabilities. AAS staff members are always available for consultation to answer questions, discuss concerns, or conduct presentations on disability related topics. Our office is located in Higgins Annex, Room 017. We are available in person, by email (aas@wcsu.edu), and by telephone at (203) 837-8225 (203-837-3235 TTY).
