RODRIGUEZ-MARTIN, Alejandro  e  ALVAREZ-ARREGUI, Emilio. University and disability: Attitudes of professors and students. Perfiles educativos [online]. 2015, vol.37, n.147, pp.86-102. ISSN 0185-2698.

Differently-abled students constitute an emerging group which has gained relevance in higher education under legal changes enacted in Spain. The objectives of this study were to identify the attitudes of a sample of university members (professors, n=367 and students, n=2025) toward that group and its inclusion in the university, and validate a new instrument for measuring attitudes, the CUNIDIS scale. This instrument has 40 items, satisfactory psychometric properties of reliability, uniformity, and validity, and high predictive validity. The results obtained indicate a positive general attitude toward inclusion of differently-abled students, higher in the peer group than among professors. There are discrepancies in relation to teaching action and the implementation of curricular adaptations depending on group surveyed, gender, and area of expertise. The results are interpreted based on the social dimension of the European Higher Education Area and proposals for improvement are made on that line.
