Some other reminders include: The D Center has an Interpreter Request form. This form is available to request for ASL interpreting, Deaf-Blind interpreting and/or captioning. This request is a great way to create accessibility for folks. Any registered organizations or groups at the UW are eligible to apply for this request. The form to request for interpreting is found here: http://depts.washington.edu/dcenter/wordpress/?page_id=243 At the link of the form also includes a detailed policy list that we will abide by. Please let us know if you have any questions! Please forward widely.

The D Center also has a workshop/event ideas call. We will present these events during Spring Quarter. We welcome all ideas from anywhere (outside of Washington state too). The application may be found here: http://depts.washington.edu/dcenter/wordpress/?page_id=60 and it is due April 5, the same day as our opening!

I hope to see you all there at the Grand Opening!!
