Disability Resource Center

At the Disability Resource Center (DRC), we are committed to helping each student reach his/her maximum potential and to improving disability understanding and support on campus.

The DRC staff acts as a resource for students, faculty, staff and community members on issues of disability to ensure students’ full participation at Southern. We offer assistance with course selection and registration, as well as developing compensatory strategies such as time management, study skills, identifying strengths and weaknesses, etc.
