Assistive Technology

What is assistive technology?
Assistive technology refers to any “product, device, or equipment, whether acquired commercially, modified or customized, that is used to maintain, increase, or improve the functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities.”

The DRC works closely with students, faculty, and campus departments to promote awareness of and familiarity with available assistive technology.
