Disability Resource Center
Athens Contact: Dr. Peter Bertot
Gwinnett Contact: Teresa Raetz, PhD
The mission of the Disability Resource Center (DRC) in Athens is to create an accessible academic, social, and physical environment for students with disabilities at the University of Georgia. We seek to eliminate attitudinal barriers that exist on campus and to serve as advocates for students with disabilities. The DRC also encourages students to develop independence and responsibility as they participate in University life.
The DRC provides services to students who have physical, cognitive, or psychological impairments which substantially limit one or major life activities. Examples include chronic illness, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, learning disability, hearing impairment, visual impairment, mobility impairment, psychological impairment, and traumatic brain injury. The academic and support services promote equal access to University programs and activities. The DRC also provides state-of-the-art assistive computer equipment and devices designed to level the playing field for people with disabilities.
Students with disabilities are encouraged to call or visit the office to meet with a coordinator, or to complete the online intake packet.
