Our New Name

We are excited to share the news of three name changes to our office!

  • Disability Services is now the Disability Resource Center (DRC)
  • Student Services is now Student Access
  • Disability Specialists are now Access Consultants

Why the change?

Our mission statement is “Advancing Access for Everyone.”

Disability is integral to who we are. We advance access by addressing barriers in the learning and working environments of the University of Minnesota.
