History:

The Access Lounge was initiated by the Accessibility Director, Mohamed Behi, in the 2016/17 year. Mohamed worked with the board of directors, executive team and UWSA  along with U of W staff to develop a consultation process for students to give their input.  Today, the Access Lounge reflects the needs and wants from students who gave their input during our consultations sessions or through our online survey.

Connect:
