Student authors' article to appear in academic journal
Friday, April 10, 2015

“Using Experiential Learning to Improve Disability Services on a College Campus,” a paper written last year by three Fredonia students, will be published in the spring edition of The Undergraduate Business and Economics Research Journal.

The author trio includes Alison Scaringi, a senior Business Administration major with a concentration in Management, and two 2014 graduates, Amanda Swan and Brandon Napieralski, who also majored in Business Administration with a concentration in Management.

The paper was assigned to the three students in spring 2014 in an upper-level course, Production and Operations Management II, taught by Dr. Lisa Walters, who also assisted with formatting the document as well as revisions and the resubmission process.

Management of disability services in institutions of higher learning -- specifically Fredonia -- is explored in the paper that utilized Six Sigma methodology to improve the process of providing accommodations for those students. The trio also provided recommendations to the Director of Disability Services Support to achieve improvements based on their findings.

Scaringi, who also has a minor in Criminal Justice, will graduate in May.

The Undergraduate Business and Economics Research Journal, based in Berry College in Georgia, is positioned to become a nationally known source of high quality undergraduate research in business and economics compiled by students from across the country.
