Training Requests

The Department of Accessibility Services (DAS) is committed to provide education, awareness, and outreach to students, staff, faculty and all affiliated Emory community members. To help us achieve this goal, we now offer an array of presentations, tabling events, programming and many other informational sessions open to the Emory community. As an office, we aim to provide these presentations to various groups on campus.
