Using Disability Studies Theory to Change Disability Services: A Case Study in Student Activism
Cory, Rebecca C.; White, Julia M.; Stuckey, Zosha
Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, v23 n1 p28-37 2010
In 2001, a group of student activists at Syracuse University started an organization called the Beyond Compliance Coordinating Committee (BCCC). The BCCC activists used disability studies theory to engage the campus in conversations about disability and inform significant change in the way Syracuse administration think about disability. This paper explores what makes Syracuse unique and what happened between 2001 and the present day. It concludes with recommendations for disability services providers on how they can use the experience at Syracuse to inform their thinking about campus culture and services.
