Serving Students with Disabilities

Synopsis

This issue examines what student services professionals can do to ensure the success of the growing population of students with disabilities. The contributors explore the critical role that community and dignity play in creating a meaningful educational experience for students with disabilities and show how to help these students gain meaningful access and full participation in campus activities. In addition to such common concerns as fulfilling legal requirements and overcoming architectural barriers, the contributors also address a full range of important issues such as effective approaches to recruitment and retention, strategies for career and academic advising, and the impact of financial resources on funding programs and services. This is the 91st issue of the quarterly journal New Directions for Student Services.
