Disability Advocacy Program

Disability Resource Center: recognizing disability, emphasizing possibility with accessible icons

The Disability Advocacy Program promotes understanding and awareness about disabilities on our campus. We hope that with greater awareness we can create a more inclusive environment for persons with disabilities at the University of Louisville. Help us to recognize disability and emphasize possibility!
