Findings Report: Fall 2006 Survey of New Jersey Campus Programs for Students with Disabilities
New Jersey Commission on Higher Education
This biennial survey, issued to all New Jersey postsecondary institutions, provides the Commission on Higher Education with current information about both the population of college students with disabilities in the state, as well as the extent to which this population is served by the state-funded regional centers. The survey was sent to all senior public institutions, community colleges, and independent and proprietary institutions in the fall 2006. For the purposes of this survey, each of the three campuses of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey was considered a separate institution. A 94 percent response rate, 47 out of 50 institutions, was achieved. The survey was sent to the person identified as the special needs service provider for the college. As the person responsible for coordinating accommodations for college students with disabilities, service providers generally have the greatest level of contact with these students. The data and opinions they have provided present a picture about the population of students with disabilities attending college in this state and the emerging trends and needs in this area. Three appendices include the survey document, results by institution, and by regional center.
