DLRC Services During the COVID-19 Pandemic

The DLRC always strives to promote inclusivity and accessibility throughout the SAIC campus community but it is even more important now as we navigate new requirements and changes across campus environments as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Students with disabilities are uniquely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and maintaining their health and safety is our priority. The DLRC is strictly adhering to the guidelines of the SAIC Make Ready plan as well as State and Local public health guidance pertaining to social distancing, hand hygiene, and masks.

The DLRC staff is supporting students remotely via phone or face-to-face video chat. In addition, a DLRC staff member will be physically present on campus Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM to manage urgent access issues. 

Scheduling an Appointment

All students must have a scheduled appointment to meet with a DLRC staff member. To schedule an appointment, please contact us by emailing at dlrc@saic.edu or calling 312 499-4278 and you will be directed to a DLRC staff member.

Accommodations During COVID-19 Pandemic

Many changes have been made in order to safely continue to provide access to the quality education you expect. Changes in course delivery and classroom environments may result in a need to modify your accommodations. We do not assume that students will require the same accommodations as were needed prior to these changes. The barriers that exist at the intersection of your disability and course design may no longer exist or may be different from the original course format. Some accommodations used before may no longer apply and some accommodations not considered before may need to be considered now. Please contact the DLRC as soon as possible to schedule a time to discuss modifications to your accommodation plan.
