Increasing the Representation of People with Disabilities in Science, Engineering, and Mathematics

Increasing the Representation of People with Disabilities in Science, Engineering, and Mathematics

This academic paper identifies three main factors that cause individuals with disabilities to be under-represented in science, engineering, and mathematics fields: preparation of students with disabilities; access to facilities, programs, and equipment; and acceptance by educators, employers and co-workers. This paper explores the role of information technology, describes a campus program designed to positively influence each of the factors, and makes a series of recommendations for action.
