Our services include guided tours, event support, and connecting people to other services and groups on campus.

Here are a few examples:

  • Attending an event with a person who sometimes experiences social anxiety.
  • Guiding a community member living with a mobility disability to a guest lecture.

We find solutions to barriers, one person at a time. We respect the dignity of all people, and work to support equatable access to services and spaces. We work in partnership with the Accessibility Hub.
