The Disability Outreach Center is a student organization that serves people with disabilities and community allies. The DOC provides information, referrals and educational programming targeting disability issues in order to provide students with a connection to community resources and to promote their human and civil rights. The DOC also provides a safe space for all people, social programming and promotes community pride for students with disabilities.

We’re part of the ROP:

The DOC is part of the Resource and Outreach Programs (ROP), a group of 7 student-run offices that addresses social issues and underrepresented populations. As part of the Associated Students, your student government and source of campus events, we provide resources and programming about LGBTQ issues, disability, women’s issues, sexuality, legal issues, social issues and veterans. We strive to be accurate, unbiased and confidential.

The AS provides various facilities and services that offer Western students resources such as publicity and off-campus outdoor activities. The Publicity Center, Child Development Center, Lakewood, Recycle Center, Lost & Found, Off-Campus Housing Registry, Classified Ad Board, Viking Union, Viqueen Lodge, and Associated Students Bookstore are all facilities and services of the AS.

Child Development Center – The WWU Associated Students Child Development Center (CDC) is a NAEYC accredited early childhood education program for student parents and working professionals of Western Washington University. Tuition for student parents is based on income and is subsidized by the Associated Students. The CDC serves 56 children ages 2-5 each quarter. The program manager and teaching staff provide a safe and healthy environment for young children, supporting the social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth of each child.

The CDC also supports students interested in careers in early childhood education by providing a place for service learning projects, classroom observations, practicum experiences and educational outreach activities. Parents benefit from quarterly parent trainings, special events for the entire family and parent advisory board participation. The CDC is not only child centered, but family centered as well, meeting the special needs of student parents.
