The Disability Resource Center is always working to engage students of all backgrounds with their environment here at Purdue. This has taken many different forms over the years, and is continuing to do so even now. Below are a few recent stories relating to disability, the DRC, and more.
Comedian Ryan Niemiller, who finished third on NBC’s America’s Got Talent, will perform a standup routine at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 23, in Loeb Playhouse. The event is free and open to the public, but tickets are required.
Exit the elevators on the eighth floor of Young Hall, and on the carpet to your left are train tracks made of tape. Students with Purdue’s Disability Resource Center (DRC) laid them down in March of 2017 for Disability Awareness Month.
