Welcome to the Disability Resource Centre 

 

Mission Statement

The Disability Resource Centre represents UFV's commitment to enhancing and facilitating the support of students with disabilities. Furthermore, the Disability Resource Centre provides information to UFV students, staff and faculty, as well as the community, on disability issues and the implications of disabilities on education.  By so doing, we celebrate the enrichment that persons with disabilities bring to UFV.

The University of the Fraser Valley is an academic community that values diversity and seeks to promote meaningful access to educational opportunity for all of its students. The Disability Resource Centre operates as the central contact point for students with disabilities at UFV. We are here to smooth the path for students with disabilities as they move through their academic career. Services for students focus upon providing accommodations and services to help meet academic demands, while promoting student responsibility and self-advocacy.

The Disability Resource Centre operates under the guiding principles of: 

  • Student Centeredness

  • Transparency

  • Inclusivity

  • Integrity

  • Collaboration

  • Self-Advocacy
