What sets Arizona DRC apart?

A Long History 

Arizona Disability Resources has a longstanding commitment to disability access. The DRC was founded over 40 years ago, pre-dating the passing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) by nearly twenty years. 

International Outreach 

DRC is committed to international outreach and has partnerships with the U.S. Department of State that have included invitations to join international delegations to Ukraine and China, as well as our appointment as a site for the U.S. Global Sports Mentorship Program. 

Leadership in Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD)

With almost 4,000 American and international members, AHEAD is a professional organization for disability resources professionals. DRC staff often present at AHEAD conferences and have consistent representation on the Board of Directors.
