Disability Resource Center
Peer Mentor Program
The Disability Resource Center (DRC) works with students who have disabilities, and who have requested accommodations to access this educational environment. In addition, DRC can offer another resource for students: the peer mentor program. The peer mentor program was designed to offer an additional support network for students who feel more comfortable talking to another student about time management, organization, and best approaches in working with faculty members. Peer mentors also offer a secure social connection; students can come into the DRC office, located in 143 Memorial Hall, and speak confidentially with any of the mentors at any time.
