The Assessment of Campus Climate to Enhance Student Success survey (ACCESS) is a set of four questionnaires designed to elicit feedback from five campus constituencies including faculty, administration, staff, students with disabilities, and students without disabilities "to use in planning and garnering support for meaningful activities and changes" related to disabilities issues in higher education. ACCESS measures knowledge about, attitudes toward, and perceptions of disability issues. ACCESS is intended to assist institutions of higher education in planning strategies to better meet the needs of students with disabilities. In this article, the process of a community-based participatory research initiative to implement ACCESS is described. A collaborative team of students, a faculty member, and the Coordinator for Students with Disabilities used ACCESS to increase awareness of disability issues and provide a framework for institutional intervention. (Contains 2 tables.)
