The mission of the Student Disability Resource Center (SDRC) is to provide service, support, and resources for students with disabilities to maximize educational opportunities at Humboldt State University.
The Student Disability Resource Center (SDRC) provides services in support of the educational experience of students with disabilities attending Humboldt State University (HSU) and has done so since 1976. Disabilities include: visual impairments, hearing impairments, deafness, mobility limitations, learning disabilities, and other physical impairments or conditions which impede full participation at HSU. The program serves as an advocate in affirming a student's (with a disability) right to maximize educational opportunities, and as a liaison for integrating students with disabilities into the mainstream of campus life. Eligibility for program participation is predicated on written medical documentation of disability which is held strictly confidential. Services are approved on a course-by-course, term-by-term basis.
Services are provided under the mandates of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA of 1990, Revised 2009) as well as Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The ADA gives civil rights protection to individuals with disabilities similar to those provided to individuals on the basis of race, sex, national origin, age, and religion. Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act states,
"...No otherwise qualified handicapped individual...shall, solely by reason of his handicap, be excluded from participation in, be deprived the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance."
These nondiscrimination statutes guarantee equal access to our nation's universities and colleges, as well as participation in those programs as a whole.
