The purpose of the SRC is to facilitate academic success for students with disabilities by providing equal access to educational opportunities in an integrated campus setting and to appreciate that each student brings a unique set of experiences to the college community.
Services are provided to students with disabilities who self-identify. Disabilities can include impairments in mobility, vision, hearing and speech, learning disabilities, psychological disorders and developmental disabilities. Students who experience other functional limitations as a result of acquired brain injury or health problems such as arthritis, diabetes, seizure disorders, HIV related impairments or others qualify for services.
The El Camino Community College District is committed to providing equal opportunity in which no person is subjected to discrimination on the basis of ethnic group identification, national origin, religion, age, sex, race, color, ancestry, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability or retaliation.
The El Camino College Compton Center Special Resource Center (SRC) is committed to students with disabilities and their right to an equal educational experience. Students are encouraged to use our services for full integration into all aspects of college life. Several support services are available for students with disabilities that affect one or more major life functions.
The primary objective of the program is to assist students with disabilities in the successful completion of their academic endeavors. This is accomplished through a process of goal setting, personal assertiveness, and progressive independence.
Each person would have the benefit of an individual approach to accommodate needs associated with a wide range of disabling conditions. There are many support services and various specialized devices to facilitate the process of reasonable classroom accommodations.
Participation in the Special Resource Center is voluntary. Students who choose to identify themselves to the SRC and qualify for services will work with staff to determine appropriate and reasonable academic accommodations.
