Mentoring for Disability Support Service Program Development. AACC Project Brief.
Staff from eight community colleges experimented with a team mentoring relationship to strengthen their programs for students with disabilities. This project explored ways in which disability support service (DSS) professionals could benefit from mentoring by their peers in other institutions. From a national applicant pool of 47 colleges, 4 were selected to participate in the project. In a separate competitive process, DSS professionals from four additional colleges became the project mentor team. Each mentor was paired with an individual college and its two-person team, consisting of a DSS practitioner and a college administrator. The mentors became "outside experts," neutral observers who could act as advisors. Information on implementation, contacts, challenges, and success factors is provided for each of the four participating colleges: Coconino Community College, Arizona; SUNY College of Technology at Delhi, New York; Harrisburg Area Community College, Pennsylvania; and Ocean County College, New Jersey.
