She also conducts training concerning the Americans with Disabilities Act and meets with prospective students and their families regarding services and accommodations at UM. McCune also has served on numerous committees and boards of directors advocating for persons with disabilities.

A colleague said, “Deborah coordinates access for her students that include testing modifications, classroom accommodations, interpreters and much more. She also organizes communication with other departments to address students’ concerns. Not only is Deborah active on the Montevallo campus, she visits other educational industries to train others in the field of disability services and is a member of Alabama Association of Higher Education and Disability.”
