Nicole Greely’s In-Depth Research About Spending Cuts On Disabled Student Services Will Be Exhibited at the San Diego Union-Tribune Festival of Books

Nicole C. Greely has been a student with disability and has recently published a highly informative book about the impact of economic downturns and funding cuts on Disabled Student Services (DSS). The economic challenges experienced by the U.S. in the last decade had undoubtedly affected the experience of disabled persons currently pursuing postsecondary education, but there remains scant research on actual numbers.

The upcoming San Diego Union-Tribune’s 7th Annual Festival of Books will bring together writers, publishers, and lovers of literature from all over the San Diego area and beyond. It is also an opportunity for some researchers to publicize their findings and bring little-known information to a public that deserves the truth.

This was the mission of Nicole C. Greely, a graduate of the University of California. Her book, “Disparity of Service,” presents a qualitative study she conducted that directly measured the impact of spending cuts in postsecondary education on the experience of disabled students. More specifically, it looks at spending cuts that were made as a result of economic downturns.

To date, there remains very little research that analyzes the chain of cause-and-effect that starts with large economic problems (such as recessions) and ends with the impact on services for vulnerable populations such as the disabled. Greely herself is also among them, having been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis just at the end of her high school years.

Her study interviewed 20 students with disability mostly from community colleges, as well as one from a public university and one from a private university. And towards the end, while many of the disabled students still expressed confidence in their graduation prospects, their psychological struggles resulting from cuts in quality services were notable and worth drawing attention to.

Attendees to the San Diego Union-Tribune Festival of Books should check out Nicole C. Greely’s “Disparity of Service” at the self-publishing and book marketing company ReadersMagnet’s exhibit. The book festival will be presented by the University of San Diego on August 19, 2023, at 5998 Alcala Park, San Diego, CA. Get a copy of the book on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
