Being proactive means to initiate changes yourself rather than reacting to things that happen. This approach is especially effective for postsecondary institutions when developing plans for creating campuswide access for deaf students. In the past, institutions may have taken a "wait-and-see" approach to the planning of accommodations for students with disabilities. However, many institutions are taking a proactive stance on planning how students with disabilities will access the full spectrum of programs and events available on campus.
