Disability is an aspect of diversity that is integral to our society and to the University of Arizona campus community.
The Disability Resource Center collaborates with students, faculty and staff to create educational environments that are usable, equitable, sustainable and inclusive of all members of the university community. However, if you encounter academic or physical barriers on campus, DRC staff is available to partner with you in finding good solutions or to implement reasonable accommodations.
DRC works proactively with instructors in reimagining the design their of courses. Our goal is to encourage faculty to think broadly about all the different characteristics students may bring to the classroom and to create educational experiences that will be meaningful to each of them. When we are successful in this partnership, you may not need to use the individual classroom accommodations you have used before. An example is note-taking. When an instructor posts class notes on an open Website for all students, the individual accommodation of ‘note-taking’ may not be required.
Below is a video created to give you additional information about the DRC:
