My dissertation defense of An Exploration of the Lived Experiences of College Students with Disabilities
The purpose of this qualitative study was to investigate the experiences of students with disabilities during attendance at four-year degree granting higher education institutions.
While society has greatly progressed from lifetime institutionalization of individuals with disabilities, the focus now needs to include supporting rights and integrating individuals with disabilities into the community so they may fulfill their ideal roles within society. The benefits of including students with disabilities in the higher education environment reach beyond the individuals themselves. Students with disabilities can achieve success in higher education; society on the whole, however, needs to support their needs as learners.
