We’re so proud of all of our PTK students, but especially proud of those who received support through BCC’s Disability Resource Center, which represent more than 10 percent of inductees,” said Pamela Farron, Coordinator of Disability Services. The Disability Resource Center offers a variety of services to meet students’ individual needs, from accommodated course exams to assistive technology. The mission is to provide a supportive atmosphere that encourages and promotes independence.
