Learning Disability in Higher Education… | Lexie Garrity

Learning Disability in Higher Education and the Professor Student Relationship The professor-student relationship in higher education may be one of mentorship, trust, and academia. In order to strive for this valuable relationship, we must adjust to the diverse population of students in higher education, particularly those with learning disabilities. A certain understanding of capability and confidence from both parties is needed in order to create an inclusive environment for prospering professor-student relationships. It’s time for students to advocate with a plan and for professors to listen with purpose. Altering how we take action will motivate professor-student relationships that will in turn stimulate growth within higher education.
