Published by The California Postsecondary Education CommissionMarch 2009. 4 Pages. View Full Publication
Access and equity for all students in higher education continues to be a high priority for the California Postsecondary Education Commission. Recent work in this area has focused on students with disabilities as well as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) students. The Commission formed an Access and Equity for All Students Advisory Committee in spring 2008 to discuss challenges faced by these students, the data available, and recommendations to expand opportunities and improve outcomes.
At the Commissionís March 2009 meeting, a panel of advocates and students discussed issues faced by students with disabilities, similar to a panel for LGBT experts presented in December. This report summarizes the status of research on students with disabilities and introduces the panel. At the June 2009 meeting, Commission staff and the advisory committee will offer policy recommendations on improving access and equity in higher education for both groups of students.
