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

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 and staffing availability. Our virtual hours will continue to be Monday-Friday 9am-5pm.
