Meekosha, Helen; And Others
Higher Education Research and Development, v10 n1 p19-39 1991
A study of five Australian universities' practices regarding students with disabilities, particularly in social work departments, found major resource problems in meeting needs, exacerbated by bureaucracy, politics, and limited willingness to plan effective recruitment and support for these students. Greatest progress occurs with sustained student action and senior staff commitment. (Author/MSE)
