Disability As Diversity in Higher Education : Policies and Practices to Enhance Student Success
About this item
Addressing disability not as a form of student impairment—as it is typically perceived at the postsecondary level—but rather as an important dimension of student diversity and identity, this book explores how disability can be more effectively incorporated into college environments. Contextualizing disability within diversity outcomes, chapter authors illustrate how higher education institutions can use policies and practices to enhance inclusion and student success. Chapters propose new perspectives, empirical research, and case studies to provide the necessary foundation for understanding the role of disability within campus climate and integrating students with disabilities into academic and social settings.
