Departmental Accessibility Resource Coordinators

Campus Organization

Each campus that chooses to adopt and develop a DARC network will have a different organization, population and structure.  If there are departments, DARC may be the appropriate or chosen acronym. If there are other units at the bottom of the organizational chart, this can be adapted accordingly.  The most important feature is to reflect the infusion approach, ensuring that information regarding accessibility and universal design is reaching all levels of the organizational chart -  from the grassroots bottom branches, divisions, departments or units of the campus to the uppermost administration.

"...Even though I was flunking English because I couldn't spell; in my high school year book under ambitions I had written 'Author'. When I went off to college I ran into a guy at the University of Oregon named Ralph Salisbury who was my first creative writing instructor and he turned all the lights on for me. He was the first teacher in all my years who actually said I had talent. Some people don't know this, but I have dyslexia."
