dc.description.abstract This study provided a description of how college/university recreational departments addressed their responsibilities to ADA, in particular, those accommodations considered beyond physical access. The results of this study contributed to the body of knowledge for staff preparation, program scope, and administration for recreational services on college/university campuses.This study surveyed college/university recreation departments to determine if disability awareness training was being implemented and what methods of training were being implemented. Reasons for not including disability awareness training were also reported.The Disability Awareness Training of Recreation Staff (DATR) survey was emailed to 114 National Intramural Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA) Region III directors through an InQsit® program. Frequency and percentages were used to report the results. Response rate was 33% (n=38). The majority of the respondents were members of the National Intramural Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA), and over 60% served in the role of Director of Recreation for the university. Twelve of the 38 respondents reported providing disability awareness training with the majority using the method of hands on training to implement such training. Lack of perceived need was the top reason for college/universities not to provide disability awareness training.
