Accessibility and Disability Resource Center

The Disability Pride flag was redesigned in 2022 by the original artist, Ann Magill, to be more accessible. The artist created the flag to be symbolic, attributing specific meaning to each element:

  • Having All Six "Standard" Flag Colors: signifying that Disability Community is pan-national, spanning borders between states and nations.
  • The Black Field: Mourning and rage for victims of ableist violence and abuse
  • The Diagonal Band: "Cutting across" the walls and barriers that separate the disabled from normate society, also light and creativity cutting through the darkness
  • The White Stripe: Invisible and Undiagnosed Disabilities
  • The Red Stripe: Physical Disabilities
  • The Gold Stripe: Neurodivergence
  • The Blue Stripe: Psychiatric Disabilities
  • The Green Stripe: Sensory Disabilities

The University of Oklahoma is committed to providing reasonable accommodations to individuals with disabilities. Any student or employee with a disability is eligible to request in order to equalize opportunities.

Mission Statement

The Accessibility and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) is an integral part of the University of Oklahoma. The ADRC is dedicated to inclusivity and helping to foster a sense of belonging by increasing accessibility for all students with disabilities, cultivating an environment of connectedness and belonging, and providing advocacy, resources, and support at all levels of education on all OU campuses.  The ADRC will strive to ensure equal access for all students with disabilities, determined by an interactive process with the student.  ADRC will work to advance knowledge and awareness around Inclusive (Universal) Design, including digital accessibility and structural accessibility, and will continue to provide support to students, faculty, staff, and other OU community members in virtual and physical spaces.  We endeavor to create a campus community that respects the diversity of persons with disabilities by providing educational opportunities, creating outreach to campus and community partners, and by facilitating accessible environments and experiences for all members of the University of Oklahoma.
