DO-IT logo

Those with disabilities will have improved access to the activities of National Science Foundation (NSF) Engineering Research Centers, thanks to a two-year NSF grant for UW DO-IT’s AccessERC initiative. These centers join academia, industry and government to produce transformational engineered systems and engineering graduates adept at innovation. The ultimate impact of AccessERC will be to increase the successful participation of people with disabilities in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), bringing their perspectives and expertise to these fields.
