Abstract

Using Bronfenbrenner’s ecological systems model (1979, 1993), we analyzed grounded theory data from 31 student affairs professionals about supporting students with and without disabilities in, and beyond, the university microsystem of housing. Participants described the challenge of simultaneously meeting the needs of students with and without disabilities with regard to: assigning of single residence hall rooms, allowing service/comfort animals on campus, and navigating interpersonal conflicts. Student affairs professionals also expressed the need for cross-campus collaborations.
