MACOMB, IL - The Disability Resource Center is inviting all Western Illinois University faculty and staff to participate in the Fall 2013 Faculty and Staff Partnerships for Accessible Solutions (FASPAS). FASPAS is a program that focuses on making WIU more accessible.

A series of workshops will be held in the Horrabin Hall Multimedia Lab, room 104, from 9 a.m.-noon. The four sessions will be held on Oct. 10, 17, 24 and 31.

Faculty and staff can earn benefits from attending the workshops including instruction in the application of Universal Design principles and exposure to techniques that increase course and service ability. PAA credits can also be earned.
