A study identified operational computer lab models being used at higher education institutions to accommodate the computer needs of students with disabilities and to develop an instrument to assist administrators as they evaluate their programs to implement such models. Study findings presented the case that institutions have to address the issue of access to computer technology by all students. These findings are supported by studies that showed legislative initiatives that mandate disability accommodations, increasing numbers of students with disabilities enrolling in U.S. colleges and universities, increasing numbers of computers on campuses, and the requirement for use of computers by college students.
