Postsecondary Students with Disabilities and Perceptions of Faculty Members
Kraska, Marie
Journal for Vocational Special Needs Education, v25 n2-3 p11-19 Win-Spr 2003
The purpose of this study was to ascertain the perceptions of postsecondary faculty members related to students with disabilities. A questionnaire, entitled "The Survey of Faculty Attitudes Relative to Serving Students with Disabilities," was used to collect data from a sample of 106 faculty members at a public four-year, state-supported institution in the southeast. No statistically significant differences in perceptions existed based on gender, age, years of teaching, and contact with students with disabilities. Statistically significant differences in perceptions were found for academic rank and academic unit. Such research is useful to help develop and implement policies for serving students and to identify areas in which training programs may enhance faculty knowledge and sensitivity toward students with disabilities.
