Subject: Proposal for adopting disabled facilities in NDU

This report is written as a course project requirement for the ENL 230 for the Fall Semester 2012. Noticing a major problem that is encountering NDU students, disabled ones specifically, this report was done as a proposal to provide disabled facilities at NDU. A questionnaire was distributed randomly on campus seeking students’ opinions regarding this issue. Results based on statistics highlighted the fact that NDU students believe that the university should adopt these facilities that would benefit all the disabled students currently enrolled, potential appliers, and the university’s reputation as a whole. This report discusses the need, importance, and consequences of such implementation. We would like to thank you for giving us the opportunity to get involved in this matter, it covered the way for us to truly understand how essential these facilities are and we are standing still as spectators. We enjoyed working on this assignment and learned quite a bit from our analysis. We would like to mention that the implementation of disabled facilities at NDU is worth it, hoping for a reaction as soon as possible. Please let us know if you have any questions about the report.

INTRODUCTION

The disabled NDU student is, unfortunately, unaccompanied with an environment that makes these students at comfort at university. This issue is not a secondary matter; it should be dealt with as a priority. NDU students with walking disabilities for example face the nightmare of our university’s long stair cases every day. Being excused for their lateness is not the solution; the university should take an action to treat this problem from its roots. We should stop feeling sorry for the disabled at the university for not being able to make their way to their classes, but should feel equal to them. This equality is impossible if their privileges are not found. To ensure that the problem of disabled students at NDU is not negligible anymore, and to ensure their right to share equal opportunities like their fellow NDU students, Diane Samrani, senior lecturer in faculty of humanities, authorized this report on December 21, 2011. This problem does not only affect student, but faculty members and NDU staff.
