Comparing the College Experience for Students with and without Disabilities

Comparing the College Experience for Students with and without Disabilities

This Fast Fact summarizes a recent study by Anthony Plotner and Cindi May that focuses on exploring the perspectives of students with ID about college, including their motivations for going to college and their perceptions of academic, social, and residential life. We also examined their perceptions of on- and off-campus support and their sense of belonging on campus, and compared the experiences of students with and without ID.
