Welcome to the Disability Resource Center (DRC). As a UF instructor you share a very important role in promoting and providing equal access for students with disabilities. Students registered with the DRC are encouraged to collaborate with their instructors to ensure that approved accommodations are identified and available as they strive to achieve their academic goals and fulfill their educational responsibilities.
During a typical academic year the DRC serves well over 1,700 students with disabilities or various long and short term health related concerns. This may include, but is not limited to, students with learning, visual, hearing, physical, psychiatric/psychological disabilities or other health related issues. Academic and/or classroom accommodations, for use by students, are determined and approved by the DRC, on an individual basis. The DRC utilizes both the best practices found in higher education and the most up to date legal guidance in determining a student’s reasonable and appropriate accommodations.
The information on this site is intended to provide instructors with more in-depth information concerning responsibilities and available support when working with students with disabilities. DRC staff members encourage instructors to contact us for consultation and presentations on disability related topics. For questions regarding a specific student’s accommodations, please contact the Learning Specialists listed on the student’s accommodation letter.
