Access and Diversity


An estimated 80 million people living in the EU have a mild to severe disability and the proportion of students and staff with disabilities at universities across Europe ranges from 8-10%. Despite worldwide recognition that equal rights and opportunities for people with disabilities should be self-evident and safeguarded, much work remains to be done to achieve equal access and participation in society. The Expert Community Access and Diversity is concerned with achieving the equal participation of students and staff with disabilities in all aspects of higher education, especially international mobility.
