Getting Started

Welcome to Disability Programs and Resource Center (DPRC), a unit in Student Affairs and Enrollment Management at San Francisco State University. We work with students and employees with disabilities to ensure all aspects of life on campus including academics, events and employment are accessible. We’re always happy to consult with any campus stakeholder about ensuring equity to people with disabilities. So don’t hesitate to reach out if you have further questions!

Student perspective videos

The following videos highlight the student accommodation process and engage in ideas of how to implement Universal Design for Learning principles at San Francisco State. While accommodations and Universal Design for Learning strategies assist individuals with disabilities, they also support the success of all students. This video series is a collaboration between Academic Technology, the Longmore Institute on Disability, and the DPRC, in support of the CSU Accessible Technology Initiative.
