The University of Arizona was coined as "a university that is building a top-notch disability culture," according to New Mobility. "It is well known nationally that the University of Arizona is an attractive destination for incoming students with disabilities due to its warm weather, accessibility on and around campus, adaptive athletic programming, and the DRC's integration in everyday academics and student life. But one thing that sets the university apart, according to many students, is the sense of community."
