Assessment of Campus Climate to Enhance Student Success
Vogel, Susan A.; Holt, Janet K.; Sligar, Steven; Leake, Elizabeth
Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, v21 n1 p15-31 2008
This article describes the development, content, and use of four questionnaires that comprise the Assessment of Campus Climate to Enhance Student Success with the focus on the Faculty Questionnaire. Faculty development activities are described as an example of how the questionnaires can be used to enhance knowledge and change attitudes and practices. The results showed significant increase in faculty knowledge and changes in practices. Questionnaire findings were compared to the results of analyzing the wording and location of a welcoming paragraph in syllabi as an example of changes in faculty practices and as a method to validate questionnaire findings. Lastly, a service/research partnership with the Association on Higher Education And Disability (AHEAD) organization is described, which will provide access to the questionnaires to facilitate improving campus climate to enhance the academic success of students with disabilities. (Contains 2 figures and 3 tables.)
