Washington, D.C. – As the new academic year started earlier this month, GUSA, OCAF, and the Division of Student Affairs welcomed the hiring of the a new Access Coordinator and Events Manager. Anisha Thadani was selected for the position in August and began her work at the start of the school year. Ms. Thadani will “serve as the primary point of contact on accessibility issues pertaining to campus spaces and access routes.” Furthermore, she will work to review programming requests and ensure compliance while working to foresee and prevent possible access issues.
This hiring was the result of over a year of student advocacy efforts in order to provide students with disabilities a more unified and coordinated resource for accessing the entire Georgetown experience. GUSA President Joe Luther (COL’16) and Vice President Connor Rohan (COL’16), along with VP for Student Affairs Dr. Todd Olson, welcome the new addition to the Georgetown community.
“We are happy to welcome Ms. Thadani to Georgetown and are excited about the work she will do to improve accessibility” said Luther. “We will continue to work with student advocates both inside and outside of GUSA to make Georgetown a more accessible place for all.”
"We are enthused to have Anisha Thadani join our staff team, and we're pleased to work together with GUSA and our students to strengthen our work on critical issues of accessibility," said Dr. Olson.
