Dear Friends & Colleagues:

It is with mixed emotions that I send this email to you. After almost 18
years of service to the Disability Services Center at UC Irvine my last day
will be today, Tuesday, September 8th, 2015. I have formed many great
relationships on so many campuses nationwide and within the AT "funhouse"
with many wonderful people. There is no doubt that I will miss the
advocating of access and Universal Design, testing of AT, recommending and
creating solutions (yes, even while "breaking stuff")-but it will be the
students and people that have made this journey with its challenges, "fun."

It has been a great honor and privilege working with all of you to create a
universally designed educational environment to users of all abilities. Know
that you have been a part of some of DSC students' successes in pursuing
their academic endeavors. It is immeasurably rewarding to see our students
of all abilities don their cap and gowns, and receive their diplomas! I
wanted to name some people specifically but the list got too long!

This season of life has me moving on to invest into the lives of my two
young children, for which I look forward to. Perhaps one day I'll land back
in Higher Ed AT!

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this community. I'll still be
lurking in on your discussions-it's too hard to not look :).

Kind Regards,

Robert Espero
Assistant Director, Accessible Technologies & Resources
Disability Services Center
UC Irvine
