UFVs Disability Resource Center (DRC) recently changed its name to the Centre for Accessibility Services (CAS), to better align with changes in the industry. The CAS works to accommodate UFV students with disabilities, and to facilitate their learning.
“The name change focuses on broader processes around accessibility, focusing less on the person and difficulties they may be experiencing and more on the intersection between learning environment and student,” said Seanna Takacs, acting coordinator at the Centre for Accessibility.
The centre’s role will stay the same: to support student learning and provide information for students and the community on disability issues and the implications for disabilities for education planning and delivery.
“The mission of the centre is the same — to support accommodation planning, accessibility, and to act as a resource for students, staff, and faculty and even beyond, into the community,” Takacs said.
