    Learn how AccessEngineering, AccessComputing and the DO-IT Center maximize the potential of people with disabilities in academic programs and encourage accessibility, universal design, and inclusivity in curriculum and instruction. Among their activities is a holiday toy hack event at UW Seattle where engineering students learn how to reconfigure toys to make them more accessible for children with disabilities. In the summer, high school students design, build and test assistive robots during a week-long robotics camp through the DO-IT Scholars summer program.

    Most UW employees need to sign into Workday and record that they are taking the day off on an official UW holiday. This applies to staff and librarians who accrue time off and who would normally work on the day on which the holiday falls. However, Department of Intercollegiate Athletic coaches and academic personnel (faculty, residents and fellows and other academic staff) do not need to track time off for holidays in Workday. Medical Centers employees report time off for holiday hours in Kronos. Review the quick guide and full user guide for time off, and check out related information on the Time Off page of the Integrated Service Center website.
