Volunteer

As engaged global citizens FIU students can expand their lived experience through volunteerism. The DRC welcomes FIU student volunteers to work with our office in meeting the service needs of students with disabilities in the academic setting.

As a DRC volunteer you will be trained to provide different types of academic supports that we offer to students with disabilities. Some examples of the types of services our DRC student volunteers provide include:

  • Reading information to students with disabilities
  • Writing information for students with disabilities
  • Taking class notes for students with disabilities
  • Administrative student services for students with disabilities

Becoming a DRC volunteer is easy! If you are interested in volunteering email drc@fiu.edu or complete a Volunteer Interest Form
