Accessing approved accommodations and services is a shared responsibility among students, faculty, and staff. While the DRC staff can assist in facilitating the accommodations, students play a key role in advocating for themselves (see Norco College DRC Student Handbook). Students can also review the Self-Advocacy Interactive Training Handout.
The DRC collaborates with faculty and staff to ensure accommodations and services are accessible by students with disabilities. Faculty spend the most time with the students in and outside of class. Therefore, it is important that faculty know that the DRC is here to serve as an educational resource to help students with disabilities in their classes access approved accommodations and services. Faculty can learn more about services for students with disabilities and how to effectively respond to their needs in the Norco College DRC Faculty Guide.
