Disability Support Services

Our philosophy is to empower students to be successful in obtaining their educational goals. By providing necessary support, we help you attain your academic, vocational and personal goals at WNC. Disability Support Services provides qualified students with disabilities equal access to higher education through academic support services, technology and advocacy in order to promote their independence, retention and graduation.

Behavioral Intervention Team

In an effort to provide a safe campus environment and assist students, Western Nevada College has developed a Behavioral Intervention Team that includes members of our college as well as community professionals. We have procedures in place to ensure open communication between departments on campus as well as with community partners.

Career Connect

Students with disabilities who are attending at least one WNC class at any campus/center or web-based class, and have an open case with DETR-VR can apply for assistance and will be referred to Career Connect. Staff will work closely with a DETR- VR Counselor throughout the referral, eligibility, planning, and follow-up processes to ensure coordinated service provision will lead to successful employment outcomes.
