“It has been my pleasure to serve as the president here at WSU,” said President Schrader.

Director of Accessibility, Health, and Safety Seth Hohlbein met with a student that is advocating for accessibility for students on campus. Hohlbein has taken those concerns to Tom Webb, director of Disability Services, proposing a plan to set up a database to report accessibility barriers.
