Attention: 

In accordance with directives from Lamar University administration, the Disability Resource Center (DRC) has re-opened its physical office in Communication 105. However, in response to COVID-19 and in accordance with guidelines from the CDC, as well as state and local authorities, precautions have been put in place to ensure the safety of our staff and students.  

Hours of Operation: Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm

Safety Precautions. Face coverings will be required for entry to our office unless documentation has been provided and an accommodation has been assigned through our office. Students and staff should self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 as suggested by the CDC. Equipment and workstations will be sanitized regularly and in between each use. Virtual meetings (phone or video conference via MS Teams) are preferred but in-person meetings can be scheduled if deemed necessary. Hand sanitizer is available in multiple locations within the Communication building as well as in our office.  

Virtual Services. Accommodation requests, faculty notification letters, e-text requests, and notes can still be accessed virtually through AIM. AIM login can be accessed on this website by clicking the red button labeled “AIM DRC LOGIN” on the right side of each page. 

Communication Access Services. Communication access (interpreting and real-time captioning) requests for virtual services are available electronically under ‘Forms’ on this website. Communication access staff are ready and available through e-mail at drc.cadh@lamar.edu or through text/voice at 409-656-3678. 

Virtual Meetings. DRC directors and other staff are prepared to provide virtual services and are available for virtual (phone, chat or video chat) meetings. To schedule an appointment, DRC staff can be contacted directly via their e-mail or through the departmental e-mail at drc@lamar.edu. Current DRC students can also schedule appointments by logging into AIM and clicking “Request for appointment.” 

In-person Meetings. Students arriving at the DRC office for in-person business will need to use the I am Here feature in AIM to notify DRC staff when you have arrived. Instructions for this will be provided at the time of scheduling.
