David Pruden

David Pruden Interim Director
My name is David Pruden, Interim Director for the Disability Resource Center. I first started working for the DRC as an ASL interpreter more than 15 years ago. While I still spend some of my time interpreting the majority of my time is now spent working with students and faculty to improve access here at USU. I am committed to creating an environment that allows individuals with disabilities full access to all aspects of the university.

Chris Lord

Chris Lord Learning Disabilities Specialist
I'm the Learning Disabilities Specialist at the Disability Resource Center here at USU. I also work with students who have ADHD. I teach Psychology 1730, Strategies for Academic Success and help students with their transition to the University.

When I am not at work, I like to do things with my daughters. Usually, we usher for the opera and other performances. Since my youngest daughter is majoring in theatre, we go to a lot of plays. I also love to garden, read novels, and play the flute.
