Disability Resource Center
Welcome to the Disability Resource Center!

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.

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!
