The mission of the Student Disability Resource Center (SDRC) is to promote an inclusive educational experience for students through the advocacy of equal access, disability and ability awareness, and empowerment.
Every student at UC Riverside deserves the opportunity to make the most of their university experience. That’s why UCR works hard to ensure that students with disabilities have equal access to educational programs and can fully participate in all aspects of campus life.
