Supporting students, faculty, and staff with disabilities

Over the last 50 years, Congress has enacted significant legislation to open up higher education to students, faculty, and staff members with disabilities. Yet colleges are still a long way from achieving equity for disabled people.

Census data show that 18 percent of disabled adults aged 25 and older hold a bachelor’s degree, a rate half that of adults without disabilities. And disabled people are underrepresented among college faculty and staff.

Many colleges fall short of compliance with federal laws, opening them up to lawsuits and discrimination complaints. Meanwhile, caseloads are growing as students seek accommodations for an expanding range of conditions.

This Chronicle report examines how colleges are working to make physical and digital spaces accessible to all and the challenges that students and employees face in obtaining accommodations. It features insights from activists, leaders in disability services, and students, staff, and faculty members with disabilities.

Purchase this report to:

  • Learn how the principles of universal design are being used to make campus spaces accessible to everyone.

  • Examine how faculty members and campus leaders can actively confront ableism.
  • Recognize the challenges students and employees face when disclosing a disability.
