SAR Center provides opportunities for accessibility

UT Arlington’s Office for Students with Disabilities has changed its name to Student Access & Resource Center (SAR Center) to better reflect the goal of providing services to all students with accessibility needs.

"Our role on campus is to ensure and provide accommodation and to support, as much as possible, equal access,” said Cynthia Lowery, director of the SAR Center. “We want to provide opportunities for accessibility to all UTA students."
