Central Access

Community Outreach

Central Access works closely with the students, faculty and staff of Central Washington University to provide a welcoming and accessible environment for students with disabilities.

Central Access at the Kittitas County Fair

Along with quilts and hogs and canned preserves fairgoers were able to check out the Central Access tactile graphic display.  Filled with examples of tactile graphics, information about production and processing and an old tactile map of CWU,  the booth was a great way to educate the community about accessible materials for the blind.  As an added bonus, we won a red ribbon for Second Place!

Museum of Culture and Environment Access

Dr. Mark Auslander, director of the Museum of Culture and Environment at Central Washington University has coordinated several events to provide access to blind students on campus.  Students were invited to a hands on art tour of Native American art led by the artist Jim Baugh.  

Jim Baugh also spent time on campus providing students with an opportunity to try their hand at flint knapping.
