Making Good on the Promise: Student Affairs Professionals With Disabilities approaches disability from a sociocultural perspective that views disability as one of many possible social identities. Building on recent work related to implementing Universal Design in higher education, Making Good on the Promise shifts the focus from postsecondary students to staff and faculty. Although the book specifically addresses professionals in the field of student affairs, Making Good on the Promise provides insights and suggestions that are applicable to faculty and staff members working throughout higher education. Beginning with an overview of the wider disability movement, Making Good on the Promise then aims "dead center" to the heart of the experience of student affairs professionals with disabilities, to the curricular changes needed in preparation programs for that profession, to the role and appropriate action needed by allies, and to resources that all can use in the education of self and others.
