Disability Resource Center Events

The Disability Resource Center at Purdue is always looking for new ways to engage students of all backgrounds. One way we do that is by hosting a variety of events for students, meant to bring us together and form a larger community. Below is a timeline of upcoming events, which you are more than welcome to attend.

Student Advisory Committee - Meeting

09/25/2019, 5:15 - 6:15pm, WALC 3138

The Student Advisory Committee (SAC) for the DRC is a recognized Purdue student organization that is open to all students. The purpose of SAC is to inform the University about the disability experience with a goal of breaking down barriers. This will be achieved through student panel discussions, tabling evetns, hosting movie nights and discussions, participation in a "book club," and more.
