Access, Advocacy, and Achievement

The Disability Resource Center’s Learning Objectives

Students will be able to:

  • Identify disability/functional limitations and possible accommodations he/she may need
  • Demonstrate self-advocacy and the ability to communicate his/her need for academic accommodation to faculty and staff
  • Make use of the services available through the DRC to assist in reaching his/her academic potential

The Disability Resource Center provides services to academically qualified students with permanent or temporary disabilities to ensure access to programs and activities in the pursuit of attaining their educational objectives. The philosophy of this office is to encourage independence, and to assist students in realizing their academic potential and to ensure recognition of their abilities, not disabilities, as they become active participants in a diverse and global society. Disability Resource Center serves as a resource for information about disability and higher education.
