Welcome to the Disability Resource Center!
Our Mission: Disability Resource Center (DRC) at Purdue University ensures qualified students with disabilities equal access to all University programs, services, and activities. DRC supports students with disabilities by coordinating reasonable and appropriate accommodations, educating the University community about disability issues and rights, and promoting an informed and inclusive campus environment that actively addresses individual and institutional barriers.
Our Vision: DRC works to create a living and learning environment where all students’ contributions are valued and where universal access and inclusivity become the foundation of campus life.
Purdue University: An equal access/equal opportunity university
Project Eye to Eye received the Focus Award for Purdue Organizations on March 3, 2015. The Focus Awards honor efforts that further Purdue's commitment to disability accessibility and disability diversity.
Project Eye to Eye is a mentoring movement that brings college students with ADHD or Learning Disabilities, otherwise known as “think different diplomats,” together with elementary, middle, and high school students who are also different thinkers. The mentors and mentees work together on a weekly art-based curriculum that coaches mentees on discovering and using their individual strengths, valuing their own unique minds, and speaking up for what they need to succeed in the classroom.
Congratulations to our terrific Purdue student Eye to Eye mentors and to their dedicated mentor Susie Swensen for this award and for all of the good work you do!
