About DRC

Mission Statement

The purpose of the Disability Resource Center (DRC) is to ensure that students with disabilities have equal access to participate in, contribute to, and benefit from all university programs.

Our goal is to act as a catalyst for the elimination of both attitudinal and architectural barriers that present themselves throughout the university community. The DRC directly supports students with disabilities in achieving their goals-strengthening a climate of campus diversity.

Philosophy

Access-Opportunity-Success

Assisting Students with Disabilities in Higher Education

The DRC was created to meet the unique educational needs of Undergraduate and Graduate level students with disabilities. The staff at the DRC is available to provide these students with sensitive and individualized assistance at the student's request.

The DRC is dedicated to providing a coordinated program of support services which are not furnished by other university offices or outside organizations. The DRC assists students in negotiating disability related barriers and strives to improve access and opportunity. This enables all levels of students with disabilities to become integrated into campus life, and become more successful undergraduate or graduate students while maximizing their independence. Our services are free of charge.
