The Disability Resource Center (DRC) is dedicated to service excellence in the provision of comprehensive and flexible accommodation plans, working with students, instructors, staff, administration and community contacts to ensure the successful academic endeavors and goals of qualified Bellevue College students with disabilities.
The DRC works in innovative ways to provide teaching and learning opportunities to college staff, faculty members and community partners to remove barriers to access and help further the understanding, support and success of the students we serve. We contribute to the disability justice movement, centered in a social justice model of disability, and work to incorporate concepts of universal design into all aspects of the Bellevue College environment.
The DRC helps students develop the critical skills necessary to achieve success, promoting self-advocacy, and seeks to better integrate people with disabilities–through structural, curricular, and attitudinal changes — into the overall pluralistic fabric of the college and community.
The Disability Resource Center (DRC) at Bellevue College is fostering transformational change to present disability as a valued part of life. Our students bring strong compensatory skills to the world and our job is to prepare them to compete in society with their peers.
We provide a wide variety of accommodation services for students with documented disabilities, and we work to educate the community and foster inclusiveness.
