Disabled People´s Service
The Disabled Peoples' Service was set up to ensure the principle of equal opportunities by facilitating students' access to studies and services and their full participation in the university.
The Service was created from the "Plan for Integration into the UPV/EHU of the University Disabled Community", approved in September 2001 and is answerable to the Offices of the Vice-Rector of Student and Employment.
In June 2012 the Board of Governors approved the "Second Plan for Inclusion of the UPV/EHU" (spanish version) (pdf 6,33 MB)
The service currently has units at the Araba, Bizkaia and Gipuzkoa campuses.
In recent years the number of disabled students enrolled at the UPV/EHU has grown, representing a challenge that the university is now seeking to address.
The Service responds to the needs across 4 core strategies:
- Information, Advice and Guidance
- Equal Opportunities
- Training and Awareness
- Universal Access
