Disability Outreach Center

The AS Disability Outreach Center (DOC) is a resource for students with disabilities and community allies. The DOC provides information, referrals and educational programming relating to disability topics in order to provide students with a connection to community resources, raise awareness and to advocate for their human and civil rights. The DOC also provides a safe space for all students, social programming and promotes community building and pride for students with disabilities. We are located in the Viking Union in room 513.

What are you excited about for this year? I am excited to have the opportunity to build more relationships with students in the disability community and with the larger Western community.

What are your special interest for the office? This year I am planning to focus on strengthening the Student Disability Advocacy Committee so that we can improve accessibility and inclusion on Western's campus. I am also hoping to facilitate discussions that explore the complex and varied relationships people have with their disabilities.
