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, social sustainability, and disability justice. We find creative solutions by proactively collaborating with students, faculty, and staff to develop an accessible and inclusive environment.

Black Lives Matter

The Disability Resource Center (DRC) is firm in our commitment to taking anti-racist action and interrupting racism. We are committed to interrupting systems of oppression and marginalization that are often tied to racism including ableism, ethnicism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism, ageism, xenophobia, body shaming, and other systems of oppression and marginalization. Together, we demand justice and remain in solidarity with all members of the Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) communities.

DRC Anti-Racist Action

DRC staff are engaged in a process of collaborative education around anti-blackness and racism. Additionally, DRC staff are taking concrete actions that align with our values and commitments to anti-racism and racial justice as it pertains to our office and other spaces on campus. As a team, we acknowledge that, as those in positions of power, we have a responsibility to make significant improvements that lead to a more just Disability Resource Center and campus for students of color.

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!
