Making accessibility a priority 

As part of its mission to serve the educational needs of students of diverse backgrounds, Wenatchee Valley College is making accessibility a priority. Read the full accessibility announcement made by WVC President Dr. Jim Richardson on April 5, 2018: WVC Accessibility Announcement (PDF).

Electronic and information technology resources that are created accessibly, following universal design standards, are usable by everyone on our campus, including those with disabilities.
