Thank you for your interest in the Disability Resource Center! We exist to assist the UCSC campus with equal educational access for students with disabilities. Our goal is to:
- support retention and graduation of students with disabilities
- collaborate with students, faculty, staff and community resources to provide effective academic services.
- promote a non-discriminatory campus environment and encourage student development and independence.
We serve about 800 students a year with various permanent disabilities, including: learning disabilities, Attention Deficit Disorder, visual, mobility and hearing impairments, psychological disabilities, and chronic systemic disorders (e.g. lupus, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, etc).
We also serve students with temporary medical conditions such as those with broken bones or repetitive stress injuries.
