Disability Services

Welcome!


The University of Wisconsin-Stout recognizes disability as an aspect of diversity and is committed to creating equal access and opportunity to all campus programs and services for persons with disabilities. Our goal is to effectively collaborate with students, instructors, staff and community members to create useable, equitable, inclusive, and sustainable learning environments.

Universal Design

Universal Design, also referred to as Universal Design in Education, Universal Design for Instruction and Universal Design for Learning, are concepts related to creating inclusive instructional environments which enable the vast majority of learners equal access to educational materials. We are always happy to discuss equal access and principles of Universal Design!
