College students with disabilities--Services for


Disability and Equity in Education | Higher Education


The purpose of this study was to investigate students with disabilities attitudes regarding the accommodations and services provided to them from the Academic Success Center, Disability Resources at Rowan University. The study was also created to understand students with disabilities attitudes towards faculty knowledge and understanding of disability laws and accommodation policies at Rowan University. This study was structured based on prior research on Enhancing Engagement of Students with Invisible Disabilities completed at Rowan University (Abdullah, 2015). The study subjects included students with disabilities who were registered with the Academic Success Center: Disability Services at Rowan University. Key findings suggest that the majority students registered with the Office of Disability Services at Rowan University were satisfied with services and accommodations. Findings also found that many students were unaware and/or not knowledgeable of disability related laws. Recommendations include creating seminars to better educate students on relevant disability related laws. Faculty and administrators would also benefit from yearly seminars and trainings to learn new and effective methods to implement services and accommodations for students with disabilities.
