"The largest and most successful program of its type in the country, Adaptive Athletics provides disabled students and community members with opportunities to participate fully in the higher education experience. The Department of Veterans Affairs has established that providing competitive and recreational athletic opportunities can lessen the challenges faced by disabled veterans.  The University of Arizona’s Disability Resource Center (DRC) is nationally recognized as the premiere service center in higher education.  It has been an integral part of the University for over 40 years and leads the campus in the creation of usable, equitable, inclusive, and sustainable learning and working environments.  Through services, consultation, collaboration and programming, staff engages the campus community in dialogue and partnerships that redefine access both within and beyond the bounds of the University. The DRC houses a state-of-the-art assistive technology lab and a comprehensive adaptive athletic training center that is home to five competitive athletic teams. The DRC’s staff is active in the academic mission of the University: teaching undergraduate and graduate courses; engaging in research activities; and consulting nationally and internationally.   
DRC’s commitment to facilitating access, discourse and involvement through innovative services, programs, leadership and collaboration has made the University of Arizona a place of possibility and a destination for high-achieving students with disabilities."
