Recommendations to New York State for strategies to increase access
10. Conclusion (continued)
The goals and strategies outlined in the report are comprehensive. Implementing the strategies will take work and commitment. But the potential payoff is apparent: an enriched academic world, enriched lives and an enriched and talented workforce ready to contribute to New York's economy, society and civic life.
In the years to come, the outcomes outlined in the report will be closely monitored. It is the expectation of the Task Force that all stakeholders - institutions of postsecondary education from all sectors, business, government, families and individuals with disabilities themselves - will coalesce around the strategies listed in the report, each taking their piece and building it into a comprehensive system of accessible postsecondary education and career opportunity for all New Yorkers. In doing so, the Task Force expects that New York State will become a national model: a model of commitment to full educational and career opportunity for all.
