This facility brings together the Campus Health Services and the nationally recognized Disability Resource Center, which provides integrated academic, athletic, and support services to the campus and surrounding community. The design provides a separate identity for the Disability Resource Center, while providing equal and integrated access to all areas. This is achieved through the use of distinct building materials and “transparent” accessibility throughout the building. A three-story glass gallery serves as a grand entry and display space for each department’s outreach programs. These elements draw the campus community into the heart of the facility, where a landscaped courtyard provides an active gathering space for all to enjoy. The Highland Commons is one of several new projects included in the master plan Swaim Associates developed for this area of campus.
