Josef Mogharreban, Ph.D., CRC

Meet with Josef

Josef’s drop-in office hours will be posted soon. To schedule a meeting with Josef, please email him.


Josef serves as the Director of the Disability Access Center, arriving at Western in January, 2022. A transplant from the Mid-West, Josef holds a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Rehabilitation Counseling from Northern Illinois University before moving West and eventually to the Northwest where he earned a doctoral degree in Rehabilitation Science from the University of Washington in 2018. Josef brings 15 years of experience working with, and advocating for, people with disabilities at non-profits, state agencies, and in higher education. His experience includes directing disability services at North Seattle College, rehabilitation counseling for the California Department of Rehabilitation and for Colorado’s Division of Vocation Rehabilitation, and work at the University of Washington’s Access Technology Center. He has also taught at Northern Illinois University, the University of Washington, and here at Western. When not in his role sharing the perspective that disability is normal and part of what it is to be human, Josef enjoys hiking, paddleboarding, and cooking with his friends and family - his two young children keep him very busy (and sleep deprived).
