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.

"July 26 marks the 19th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.... the ADA's provisions include the right to seek, obtain, pursue and maintain employment without being hampered by physical or attitudinal barriers. I believe that having a job is a civil right. Those who are qualified for and want to work should not be denied that right because of an inaccessible building or an outdated set of assumptions about what they can or cannot do..."
