Nov 21, 2018

This research project will use data previously collected by postsecondary organizations to examine the proportions of students with disabilities and Indigenous students to explore if there is a correlation between these two underrepresented groups. Ms. Gottvald hopes to deliver meaningful recommendations that can potentially increase postsecondary access for Aboriginal students and students with disabilities.
