September 21, 2020 – Dr. Dana Lindsey has been named the new Coordinator of Santa Fe College’s Disabilities Resource Center (DRC). In this role, Dr. Lindsey will support the college’s strong commitment to equity, diversity and inclusiveness throughout the SF community as she leads the DRC in providing comprehensive information and reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities.
Dr. Lindsey was hired at SF as a full-time Access Specialist (formerly called Counseling Specialist) in 2008. She served in that role for 9 ½ years.

While Dr. Lindsey admits that she will miss the CAP students and the special conversations that they shared, she is looking forward to collaborating with colleagues to, “continue creating an inclusive campus to ensure accessibility to benefit all students.” As CAP coordinator, Dr. Lindsey reported to Dr. Bea Awoniyi, the Associate Vice President for Student Affairs and she will continue to do so as the DRC Coordinator.
In addition to serving on the Access & Inclusion Committee, Dr. Lindsey also assists with Title IX cases, serves on the Student Affairs Professional Development Committee and makes significant contributions to the Athletic Strategies Committee.
