Disability is an aspect of diversity that is integral to our society and to the UA Little Rock campus community. The Disability Resource Center collaborates with students, faculty, and staff to create usable, equitable, inclusive, and sustainable learning environments.

We strive to work proactively with the campus on accessibility issues by serving on many committees and by doing presentations across campus on good course design and accessibility issues. Our expertise is at the intersection of disability and design. We work with the campus community to ensure that physical, curricular, and web environments are designed to be barrier-free to the greatest extent possible.
