Lead Researcher

This research paper investigates the challenges and gaps in accommodating students with disabilities at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU). Through in-depth interviews with professors, the study reveals a lack of direct training and awareness among faculty regarding their role in providing accommodations. The findings highlight the need for improved communication, comprehensive training programs, and increased awareness of disability resources for professors. The study also emphasizes the positive impact of incorporating commonly requested accommodations into course structures and fostering greater understanding between professors and students with disabilities. Furthermore, the research underscores the importance of accurate representation and appropriate support for disabled individuals within VCU's diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives. The project offers valuable insights and recommendations for enhancing accessibility and inclusivity in higher education settings.
