UReturn: University of Minnesota Services for Faculty and Staff with Disabilities
Fuecker, Dave; Harbour, Wendy S.
New Directions for Higher Education, n154 p45-54 Sum 2011
This chapter provides an overview of UReturn, the Disability Services (DS) unit providing services to University of Minnesota-Twin Cities (UMN) faculty and staff with disabilities and health conditions. The physical layout of DS, case management policies, and collaborative work with other UMN departments all emphasize three key ideas: (1) neutrality; (2) confidentiality; and (3) early intervention. Other campuses may use these as a foundation for implementing employee services and assessing related campus resources. With more students with disabilities graduating from college, an aging workforce, and current economic conditions, employees with disabilities are becoming an increasing part of higher education, and it is more important than ever before that campuses address their needs.
