Disability Resource Center
About the DRCThe Mission of the Disability Resource Center (DRC) is to foster student inclusion into the Salt Lake Community College through processes which are accurate and understandable and which support the personal, educational and social growth of students with respect, optimism and caring. This is accomplished by:
- Providing reasonable and appropriate and timely accommodations with the goal of insuring equal opportunity and access as required under the ADA.
- Supporting the Polices & Procedures and maintaining the academic standards of the College.
- Establishing ongoing partnerships with the student, administration, faculty and staff through a framework of mutual understanding and respect.
- Providing educational information and assistance to constituent groups and consumers.
Proper documentation of a disability establishing a physical or mental impairment which limits a major life activity as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is required in order to receive services or accommodations. All authorizations for services must be reasonable in nature and are individually determined by a qualified advisor.
Reasonable accommodations are based on an evaluation of the specific requests of the student, an evaluation of individual needs, a review of previous accommodations, the recommendations of outside professionals, course requirements, specific classroom situations, and instructor input.
In order to receive accommodation under ADA, a student must apply for services through the DRC.
