Grievance about Disability Resource Center

For complaints about DRC staff, the order in which to address your concerns is:

  • The staff person about whom you are dissatisfied
  • DRC director
  • Dean of Students (501-569-3328)

The UALR Student Handbook, distributed by the Office of the Campus Life (569-3308), also provides information on grievance procedures and appeals. These grievance procedures provide you with a means of due process for dealing with concerns whether they are related to your disability or not.
