Central Access creates accessible materials for individuals with print related disabilities. This service is provided for students and staff at Central Washington University as well as for institutions and schools across the county.
Central Access employs between 15 and 20 student employees at any given time. Two Lead Technicians assist the Program Coordinator in maintaining accurate records, producing properly edited materials and assisting clients with questions or concerns.
Students gain valuable experience in the production of accessible materials. For several past and current technicians, working in Central Access has progressed from a student job, to a career path.
