The Institute for Educational Leadership has just released our new report, Higher Education’s Next Great Challenge: Ensuring Full Inclusion for Students with Disabilities. This report, authored by Eve Hill, J.D., Co-lead at Inclusivity Strategic Consulting, Dahlia Shaewitz, Vice President for Transition, Disability and Employment at IEL, and Jessica Queener Ed.D., Disability Employment Consultant, was published to support leaders in higher education to create inclusive campuses.
This comprehensive tool for colleges, universities, and other institutes of higher education provides a framework for ensuring full inclusion in classrooms and on campus. The guide includes strategies for recruiting students with disabilities, providing accommodations as a student retention and inclusion approach, strengthening access and accessibility with technology, and going beyond compliance to promote disability-diversity and equity for all students.
We appreciate your support of inclusion in higher education – we know that “all means all” – if any individual is left out of equal access to opportunity, we have not done our jobs. To help us spread the word about the Higher Education Inclusion guide, please consider sharing it with your peers.
