Center for Students with Disabilities Celebrates its 50th Anniversary!
Join us as we celebrate 50 years of providing access and accommodations to students with disabilities at UConn. From September 2017 to April 2018, in collaboration with campus partners, we will host campus-wide events including speakers, conferences, exhibits, movies and more. These events will celebrate disability as diversity and explore the history of the disability rights movement.

If you have any questions regarding the registration process or technical issues while registering through MyAccess, please contact Timothy Smagacz, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (860) 486-2020.
