The Office for Access and Disability Services is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Staff members are located on the second floor of the Connelly Center.

Prior to the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act in 1990, there were no defined services for students living with disabilities. As a reaction to the passage of this legislation, former Villanova University President, Father Edmund Dobbin, O.S.A., asked Sister Therese Wenzel to act as the advisor to students living with disabilities. Therese served the disabled community with distinction until her passing in 1994.

After Therese’s death, Father Dobbin asked Steve McWilliams to supervise accommodations for disabled students. Steve, along with Ms. Patti Rich, worked together to form an official Office for Disability Services. In 1997, Steve McWilliams assumed the role of Advisor to Student with Disabilities, in addition to his role as Advisor to International Students.

Greg Hannah came to Villanova in 2009 after working in education both at Monmouth University and Manasquan High School. Greg brought with him a wealth of experience, energy and passion for student services. Greg was instrumental in the formation of LEVEL and he has initiated several programs that have improved the campus landscape for students, faculty, and staff who live with disabilities.
