About Us

The Disability Resource Center (DRC) is an on-campus service to provide learning resources to students with disabilities to help them achieve their academic goals here at Cañada. The Disability Resource Center shares office space with two other important departments: Personal Counseling Center (PCC) and the Health Center.  These centers are united under the CARES team to provide a safe and central place for students who need personal assistance.
