This workshop will explore the broad trends emerging in higher education nationally as it relates to students with disabilities as well as how to create an inclusive and accessible campus learning environment for all students. It will cover the important changes brought about with the 2008 Amendments to the ADA and speak to the idea that merely meeting the minimal ADA compliance is not nearly enough if institutions want to be effective and competitive in the future.
