Creating Usable & Equitable Learning Environments
Disability is an aspect of diversity that is integral to our society and to the UA Little Rock campus community. The Disability Resource Center collaborates with students, faculty, and staff to create usable, equitable, inclusive, and sustainable learning environments.
We strive to work proactively with the campus on accessibility issues by serving on many committees and by doing presentations across campus on good course design and accessibility issues. Our expertise is at the intersection of disability and design. We work with the campus community to ensure that physical, curricular, and web environments are designed to be barrier-free to the greatest extent possible.
The mission of the UA Little Rock Disability Resource Center encompasses two primary functions:
- To consult and collaborate with faculty, students, other campus stakeholders, and outside entities regarding Universal Design and reframing disability.
- To facilitate access via accommodations, including those related to communication, the physical environment, print materials, and technology.
New Assistive Technology
TextHelp is our new software that all UA Little Rock students can access through their university email. It is an easy-to-use support tool that gives students extra help with reading, writing, math, and science. This tool is available on various devices to equip students with the tools they need to succeed in their academic journey.
