Welcome to the DRC!

At the DRC, the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff are our top priority. We continue to adapt our availability in line with the evolving public health guidelines. The DRC is now available by phone, email, and our Virtual Front Desk from 9am-5pm Monday-Friday. We are currently open for in-person visits 2pm-5pm Monday-Friday.

We are able to provide all services remotely and we ask that you engage with us via phone, email, or Virtual Front Desk unless you are unable to do so and require an in-person visit. We appreciate your consideration of immunocompromised and chronically ill students, staff, and community members. Please call our office at 503-725-4150 or email us at drc@pdx.edu.


Mission

Our mission is to make university life accessible to students with disabilities. We identify, evaluate, and reduce or eliminate barriers to student access and equity. We foster community and create opportunities to promote disability culture.

We focus on building partnerships and infrastructure that incorporate the principles of universal design and disability justice. We find creative solutions by proactively collaborating with students, faculty, and staff to develop an accessible and inclusive environment.

Hours of Operation

We are still here for you! We are providing all services remotely, including initial appointments and meetings. Call 503-725-4150, email drc@pdx.edu or visit the virtual front desk via Zoom Monday - Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. We are currently open for in-person visits from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday. We are monitoring voice mail and email messages closely and will respond as soon as possible.




PSU and the DRC are fragrance-free environments. For more information, please refer to the Office of Human Resource's Fragrance-Free Value Statement.

Give to the DRC

With the right resources, we are able to spend the time and money identifying and implementing the creative solutions needed to evaluate, reduce, and/or eliminate barriers to access and equity at PSU.

In particular, the DRC would benefit greatly from financial support to bolster our work in the areas of physical infrastructure and building accessibility, adaptive technology, student scholarships, and more!
