Our Mission and Vision Statements


DRC removes barriers to access for students with disabilities to have equal opportunity to participate in all aspects of the university experience.


We envision a campus community where universal design is the standard, disability is a valued aspect of diversity, and students are empowered.

The Story Behind Our Logo

At the DRC, it is important to have accessibility and representation at the forefront. The incorporation of colors surrounding the letters 'DRC' came directly from the disability pride flag created by Ann McGill. Each color represents a different type of disability.

Our logo reflects being part of the CPP community with the integration of school colors as well as the importance of inclusivity and the importance of diversity of disabilities.

Five diagonal stripes of different colors rest on a black background. The black field mourns the victims of violence and abuse against persons with disabilities. The diagonal suggests cutting across barriers that separate the disabled from society.

The flag’s five colors represent dfferent types of disabilities:
  • red (physical disabilities)
  • gold (neurodivergence)
  • white (invisible and undiagnosed disabilities)
  • blue (psychiatric disabilities)
  • green (sensory disabilities)
