Description:
The purpose of AccessSTEM is to increase the participation of people with disabilities in STEM careers. Outreach and dissemination efforts extend nationwide. The lead agency for AccessSTEM is the University of Washington's (UW) award-winning DO-IT Center (Disabilities, Opportunities, Internetworking, and Technology), which has conducted successful NSF projects continuously since 1992. AccessSTEM works with a leadership team of partners that represent stakeholders including postsecondary institutions, precollege STEM educators, disability services, veteran associations, projects that broaden participation in STEM, and industry and career services.

AccessSTEM builds on established collaborations and brings together practices that have proven successful individually, to create a unique, comprehensive set of interventions.
