Abstract:Students with physical disabilities are often treated quite differently and have a very dissimilar college life compared to "traditional" students without disabilities. In addition, students with physical disabilities require different accommodations in order for learning to take place. Likewise, minority students also face many of these same challenges and issues as disabled students. Yet, few researchers have looked at the double-discrimination of being both physically disabled and a minority. The purpose this research was two fold, with the first purposing being to look at whether current University policies are meeting the needs of physically disabled students and the second purpose to look at if minority students with disabilities have different academic experiences compared to non-minority students with physical disabilities?
