Student Disability Services is sharing the following study that is seeking participation from students with physical disabilities.

Study Description

We are students at the University of Chicago doing a study about campus accessibility for students with physical disabilities for CMSC 20370. Our collected research will be used to understand and synthesize the most prevalent and common accessibility concerns for these students. Our research will be conducted through online surveys and, if convenient or preferred by participants, individual interviews over Zoom. Eligibility of participants will be screened on the basis of their college enrollment status or employment. Our research is focused on accessibility, therefore, we will be presenting information regarding the state of campus accessibility that may be upsetting. Participants are encouraged to refrain from answering any questions they deem too uncomfortable to answer. Participation should take about five to twenty minutes. Those participating in an individual interview should expect a longer time commitment. Your participation is voluntary.
