This article describes the responses to an on-line survey that was sent to 21 universities and colleges funded during 1999-2002 by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Postsecondary Education (OPE) to develop and implement faculty and administrator professional development activities. The projects were asked to respond to a series of open-ended questions concerning their experiences over the three-year period working with faculty, administrators, students with disabilities, and other professionals on their campuses. Their responses were analyzed qualitatively by identifying recurring issues and themes. Implications of the findings for future research and evaluation efforts on the effectiveness of professional development strategies and their long-term impact on the education of students with disabilities in higher education are explored.
