Colleges and universities are seeing increasing numbers of students with a range of disabilities enrolling in postsecondary education. Many of these disabilities are invisible and, despite their potential for negative impact on students’ academic and social adjustment, some students will choose not to identify as having a disability or request support.
Approaching disability from the perspective of difference, the authors of this new volume offer guidance on creating more inclusive learning environments on campus so that all students—whether or not they have a recognized disability—have the opportunity to succeed. Strategies for supporting students with specific learning disabilities, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, autism spectrum disorder or who display learning and behavioral characteristics associated with these profiles are described. A valuable resource for instructors, advisors, academic support personnel, and others who work directly with college students.

Designed by the University 101 staff and campus partners at the University of South Carolina, the 10th edition of this resource manual provides instructional faculty with a how-to guide for designing, managing, teaching, and evaluating student work in the first-year seminar. The manual includes a detailed discussion of course management that offers suggestions for working with first-year students, designing a syllabus, establishing grading policies, building community in the classroom, and working with a peer leader. Other chapters are keyed to the 10 learning outcomes for this course, drawing on a review of the research and practice literature and approaches that have worked well in the past. Resources for students, suggested assignments, and classroom activities are included throughout. The manual is updated each year based on assessment data, indicating the approaches that were most successful in achieving course outcomes, and can be adapted for use in a variety of campus contexts.
