Invitation to Participate in a Research Study on Accessibility During COVD-19

Event Date

My name is Samantha Ridgway and I am a 2nd year graduate student at San Diego State University. I would like to invite you to participate in a research study that I am currently conducting studying students with disabilities’ perception of access, emphasizing accessibility during COVD-19. 

The study is a critical part of learning how different students view accessibility and understanding how students can be better supported in the university setting. While there is much emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion in higher education, little research is being conducted on accessibility within higher education. 

This study is a pilot study for my graduate thesis, which focuses on perceptions of access. My goal is to conceptualize what it would look like to have a standard of accessibility embedded into the very structure of university life, including courses. Your participation will be a launch pad for this vision and will help me further understand the changes that need to be made. 

This survey is meant to be a safe place. I, myself, am Deaf and Autistic. This is a study meant for students with disabilities by a student with a disability.
