Accessibility Collaboration Team
ALL ABOUT US
The Accessibility Collaboration Team (ACT) is a multidisciplinary campus partnership that serves degree-seeking students who are neurodiverse and differently-abled. ACT is dedicated to reducing barriers that impede students’ academic and professional success.
WHAT WE DO
Individualized supports may include recommendations for services, advocacy, case management, coordination of care, career coaching, academic coaching, skill-building, and more.
Systemic supports may include institutional and community advocacy, education, and partnerships.
If you are interested in initiating a referral for ACT services, please contact Counseling and Psychological Services (CPS) and request an ACT Consultation with a Clinical Case Manager.
