Our Process

The Role of the Disability Access Center

The Disability Access Center (DAC) is the office designated by Purdue University Fort Wayne (PFW) to provide services, resources, and programs to facilitate inclusive learning opportunities, resulting in full participation for students, faculty, staff, and guests of PFW regardless of disability. The DAC also determines whether students are eligible for reasonable accommodations and, if so, the nature of the accommodations.

PFW AIM Portal

Beginning with the Fall 2021 term, the Disability Access Center (DAC) will use Accessible Information Management (AIM), a virtual accommodation management portal that will assist students in coordinating their accommodations with instructors.
