Over the next five years (2017-2022), WIND will strive to improve outcomes for individuals in the areas of health and wellness, education, early intervention, employment and assistive technology.
University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities
WIND is one of 67 University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD) in the United States. Each state now has at least one UCEDD; all UCEDDs are affiliated with universities and receive funding from the Administration for Community Living, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. UCEDDs share the common university goals of teaching, research, and service, but have a specific interest in persons with disabilities, particularly developmental disabilities, serving as a bridge between the university and community. For more information, see this UCEDD brochure.
WIND is located in the Health Sciences Building on the University of Wyoming Campus. The building is located on the intersection of 9th and Clark Street.
If you are stopping in for a short visit, consultation, or to pick up a device, you may park in the small lot in front of the building. The receptionist can give you a temporary parking permit. If you are arriving for the day, please contact us for a day pass. If you are visiting campus for an extended stay, more parking information is available through TransPark.
