The Student Accessibility Resource Center (SARC)

Welcome to the SARC!


The purpose of the SARC is to coordinate services and accommodations for students with documented disabilities. Our most common activities include: reviewing disability documentation, meeting with students to determine appropriate accommodations, and partnering with other areas on campus to implement these accommodations.

The SARC strives to help students assume responsibility of their own educational experience. We assist students along the way by providing access and opportunity in order for them to reach their full potential.



The goal of the SARC is to ensure that all students with disabilities are provided access to all facets of the Western Kentucky University experience; to facilitate and coordinate support services and programs that enable students with disabilities to maximize their educational potential; and to increase awareness among all members of the University so that students with disabilities are able to achieve academic success based on their abilities, not their disabilities.
