Institutional Construction of Disabled Students
Prowse, S.
Journal of Higher Education Policy and Management, v31 n1 p89-96 Feb 2009
This paper reports on the selected findings of a recent research project centred on one new university in England (Charles "et al.", 2007). The project aimed to explore the experiences of 44 disabled students who fell into one of two distinct groups: those in local further education eligible to apply to higher education (HE), and those who were already in the HE system. A number of themes emerged from the group interview data, but here the focus is on personal identity and how the institution has an impact upon individuals' sense of self through its management of disability.
