Service to Students with Disabilities

students-with-disabilities

In January 2000 the University of Rome Tor Vergata set up a Commission for the Implementation of Law No 104 of 1992 – Disability Service. Its main purpose is to provide students with disabilities with an integrated welcome, support and inclusion service within the University environment implementing Framework Act No 104 of 1992 and subsequent amendments and additions. Those were introduced in particular with Act No 17 of 1999 and pursuant to the provisions of Article 3(6) of the University Statute.

A civilised country protects the rights of the weaker and its public education system should perform such task in an even more determined way. That is why from the very beginning the Commission has realised it commitment with a series of integrated actions aimed at overcoming technological and computer barriers, as well as organisational and managerial ones.

Furthermore, it has worked on the analysis and promotion of interventions to remove architectural barriers. The ultimate goal is to help create a ‘friendlier’ Campus, a more and more welcoming, supportive place which guarantees all students their right to education.
