Higher Education’s Next Great Challenge: Ensuring Full Inclusion for Students with Disabilities - US

This guide presents information and strategies to improve the successful participation of students with disabilities in higher education. Section 1: Begin at the Beginning introduces a purposeful recruitment and admissions approach to attracting disability-diverse students. In Section 2: More than Compliance, we describe the many aspects of accommodations for students on campus, including how to determine whether an accommodation is needed, how to meet those needs, and how to build a campus-wide understanding among students and staff about accommodations.  This document is based on the most current research on disability and higher education as well as lessons learned from studies and practices for including racially/ethnically underrepresented students, LGBTQ students, and women.)
