A gift, no matter the size, reminds our community how deeply we believe in UWM.

The Accessibility Resource Center (ARC) promotes diversity and inclusivity at UWM by providing comprehensive services and accommodations for students with disabilities in university-related academic, social, cultural, and recreational programs.

Whether you are a current student or an alum (or a parent of either), we hope your experience at with the ARC has been positive and successful! With a growing population of the students we serve, our work has become even more important on all three branches of UWM. We have hired more Access Specialists and have begun new initiatives to bring disabilities to the forefront as part of UWM’s mission of inclusivity and educational excellence.

From noon today April 13th, to noon April 14th, we ask that you consider a donation to the Accessibility Resource Center to help support our ongoing work in disability services and inclusivity of students with disabilities. Even a little bit goes a long way!
