Welcome to the Center for Disability Services
For over 40 years, the Center for Disability Services has been providing services for people with disabilities. Today, the center is a multi-service agency that provides more than two hundred thousand hours of service annually to over 250 individuals. The center operates as a community service under the auspices of the College of Health and Human Services. The range of services for adults includes Community Connections, Supports Coordination, Community Living Services, and Adult Wellness Programs. We are particularly proud of our experience and orientation toward respecting the individual, and promoting their well-being. The center also provides WMU students with an opportunity for innovative learning and discovery in the field of disabilities through internships, field experiences, volunteering and employment.
Congratulations to Dr. Andrea Perez, Faculty Specialist and Coordinator of Community Connections at the Center for Disability Services, who successfully defended her dissertation in March.
Western Michigan University's Center for Disability Services received the highest level of accreditation from a national organization that promotes quality, value and optimal outcomes of services for people with disabilities during an accreditation visit in November, 2020.
