Welcome to Lamar University Disability Resource Center

Disability Resource Center for disability support services

Welcome to Lamar University and the Disability Resource Center (DRC). We are committed to supporting students with disabilities at Lamar University through the appropriate use of advocacy, accommodations, and supportive services to ensure access to campus courses, services, and activities. The DRC is the university-designated office that determines and facilitates reasonable accommodations in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

The Disability Resource Center (DRC) is dedicated to supporting students with disabilities with inclusive opportunities and equitable learning environments. This support extends to the diverse background of our students and celebrates difference as something that helps set Lamar University apart from other institutions. As a department, we will work to ensure our events, practices, services, and goals support and celebrate the diverse multicultural backgrounds of students, faculty, and staff at Lamar University.
