About the Veterans Center
The Veterans Center is supported by the AccessComputing and the AccessSTEM projects and is managed by the DO-IT Center at the University of Washington.
The goal of the Alliance for Access to Computing Careers (AccessComputing) is to increase the participation of people with disabilities in computing fields. AccessComputing activities help students with disabilities reach critical junctures on a path toward college studies and careers in computing fields. The National Science Foundation funds AccessComputing as part of the Broadening Participation in Computing (BPC) program of the Directorate for Computer and Information Sciences and Engineering (CISE) (grant #CNS-0540615 and CNS-0837508).
The purpose of the Alliance for Students with Disabilities in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (AccessSTEM) is to increase the participation of people with disabilities in STEM careers. It builds on established collaborations and brings together practices that have proven successful individually, to create a unique, comprehensive set of interventions. Outreach and dissemination efforts extend nationwide. The National Science Foundation funds the project, which began in 2002 (cooperative agreement #HRD-0227995 and grant HRD-0833504).
