CWU Offering Accessibility Studies as First Program of its Kind in Country
Central Washington University (CWU) is offering a program dedicated to increasing awareness for accessibility issues.
"I will be the first person to sign up for the course," said senior Humberto Avila.
Avila couldn't wait to be a part of CWU's new Accessibility Studies program.
The Special Education major, who's been blind since birth, is part of the inspiration behind the program's development as a former student of the program's lead professor Naomi Petersen.
"In order to make the teaching accessible I realized we needed an accessibility program because everybody needs this in almost profession," she said.
About 30 degree programs at CWU have Accessibility Studies as a minor option.
