Departmental Accessibility Resource Coordinators

DARC Training

Departmental Accessibility Resource Coordinators (DARC) - Suggested Timeline for getting started with training:
  1. Initial Meeting/Lunch and Training – Toward the beginning of the semester.
  2. Following Lunch/Initial Meeting, and within one to two weeks, announce DARC role and availability to department/unit personnel. (Ideas e.g., flier, e-mail, meeting announcements, etc.)
  3. Disseminate!!   Insert yourself into departmental meeting agendas, with agreement of department/division director, on a regular basis to offer information regarding a resource, offer kudos to a department member executing a universal design idea into curriculum or space, do a brief activity, and/or provide updated handouts.
  4. Follow up with DARC Manager and website for updates and annual training. See Tools and Resources (hyperlink) for training materials.

"Advancing employment opportunities and expectations for people with disabilities strengthens not only America's economy, but our moral fiber. It creates a more inclusive America, one where every person is recognized for his or her accomplishments — and that should be our goal not just on Labor Day but every day."

Assistant Secretary Kathy Martinez, Office of Disability Employment Policy, September 7, 2009
