I'm going to chime in because it's not often where you get to openly advertise a job that you just vacated.

I left this position because the next chapter of my life brought me to Utah (where I am still in the accessibility industry). I have loved my time at UW and have been extremely blessed there, and in that assistant director role.

This is a GREAT opportunity for someone who has disability and technology and management experience. The UW is a lovely community of accessibility professionals, and you will find lots of positive movement regarding accessibility on campus.

Happy to answer questions as you consider if this is opportunity could be right for you. My UW email is still active for the next month.

Subject: [Athen] UW Disability Services Assistant Director Position



The University of Washington Disability Resources for Students office has an opening for a great leadership opportunity of Assistant Director. This position will have oversight of the Program Manager for the unit’s Access Text & Technology (ATT) Program while also holding a leadership, outreach and administrative role in the broader office operations. The ATT program serves all three UW campuses (Bothell, Tacoma and Seattle) in the conversion and creation of accessible instructional materials and media for courses. We partner with campus offices such as Access Technology Services, DO-IT, UW Captioning, Center for Teaching and Learning, and many more as we strive for accessible and inclusive classrooms for students.

We are excited to find a leader looking to join our team and the amazing work happening at the UW. There has been, and continues to be, some amazing work happening on campus with a focus on accessibility. It is an energizing time to work on this campus and partner with great colleagues as we form our new ideal state of operating. With a new ADA Coordinator search underway, a new charge for a comprehensive 3-5 year plan for accessibility across campus, and administrative commitment to look at how to move the dial on access and inclusion for people with disabilities, we are collectively engaged to get some great work done.

Here are some links to our website to review and see if this is position, unit and college is a fit for you. Please reach out and ask any questions as well as share and post widely with any and all peers who may be interested.
