Opportunities and Organizations

MOSSAIC

The Mentoring, Organization and Social Support for Autism Inclusion on Campus (MOSSAIC) program supports the students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) on campus. MOSSAIC uses peer mentoring to provide organizational and social support for UW students with ASD and related challenges.

MOSSAIC mentees meet with their mentor weekly, participate in monthly events, build relationships within the group and around campus, and maximize their personal talents and strengths for ongoing success.

A formal diagnosis of ASD is not a requirement of participation. Students may join the program at any time during their college experience, as part- or full-time students, and as traditional or non-traditional students. There is a nominal quarterly cost for participation, with financial assistance available. For more information, please visit their website, email mossaic@uw.edu, or call 206-543-5440.
