On 12 September, Radboud University will sign the UN intention declaration for more inclusive education for students with disabilities. The signing is public and will take place from 15:00-17:00 in the reception area of the Berchmanianum building on campus.
In the declaration, Radboud University speaks out about their ambition to implement the UN convention in higher education. The three main principles of the UN convention are inclusion, full participation and autonomy. Signing the declaration is in line with the university's policy to strengthen and improve the position of people with disabilities. One of the spearheads is to create an inclusive environment where people with disabilities can find their way without the help of third parties. Other focal points include student participation and knowledge promotion among staff and fellow students.
The chairman of the Executive Board of Radboud University will sign the declaration of intent after a short opening. Afterwards, a panel discussion will open the conversation on the current situation within Radboud University and areas for improvement for the future. Finally, it will be shared how the university is revising the policy around studying with a disability. The day will close with drinks. Would you like to be there on 12 September?
