Personnel in the SDRC oversee and coordinate services to ensure accessibility to all students with documented disabilities on an individual basis. Academic and housing accommodations are determined based on documentation submitted by the student; these are monitored by disability specialists in the program. The office also provides some assistive technology equipment and services. All services through the main office are free of charge.
