Findings Report: Fall 2008 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. New for Fall 2008, the Commission issued the survey electronically and collected responses via an online instrument. The survey was sent to all senior public institutions, community colleges, and independent institutions. A 95.6 percent response rate, 43 out of 45 institutions, was achieved, although not all the surveys were completed in its entirety. 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 an invaluable picture about the population of students with disabilities attending college in this state and the emerging trends and needs in this area. The information reported by survey participants form the basis of this report. Information reflects students who have self-identified as having a disability and/or who have benefited from accommodations. A survey instrument is appended.
