The Attitudes of College Faculty toward Students with Disabilities at a Church-Affiliated Institution
Hawkins, Donnetta Faye
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Trevecca Nazarene University
This study explored the attitudes of college faculty toward students with disabilities at a church-affiliated institution. "The Multidimensional Attitude Scale Towards Persons with Disabilities" ("MAS") was utilized to ascertain quantitative measures; while face-to-face interviews were used to collect qualitative data. Fifty-two faculty members responded to the survey and 22 faculty members were interviewed. The results of this study showed that faculty members had some positive attitudes regarding teaching students with disabilities. However, there was some apparent ambiguity in faculty members' responses as related to serving students with certain disability types. Some parallel trends were found between this study and the review of the literature; the most interesting similarity was the expressed willingness of faculty to assist students with disabilities.
