Academic Resources

The Academic Resource Center strives to create an inclusive environment for all. Equity and access are social justice issues. As such, the ARC strives to meet the diverse needs of students with disabilities in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
