Facing ableism in the postsecondary sector: Editorial


In a recent article from University Affairs, John Loeppky highlights the challenges that scholars with disabilities face when trying to gain accommodations within the postsecondary sector. Loeppky writes that the path to accommodations for instructors with disabilities is particularly difficult and often includes informal agreements, bureaucracy, challenges with human resources departments, and a culture of secrecy. The author discusses the standards universities in Canada must meet to accommodate disabled employees and highlights the steps taken at institutions such as the University of Waterloo and Université du Québec à Montréal to create a more inclusive environment.
