Framework for the self-assessment of universities on disability inclusion

Project for the creation of a framework for the self-evaluation of Spanish universities in the improvement of their actions regarding the inclusion of people with disabilities.

The present project will try to become a valuable contribution to guide the design, implementation and review of mechanisms that contribute to the improvement of the inclusion of university students with disabilities, and to move towards a meeting of perspectives between universities, students and other stakeholders involved.

The expected end result will be to provide the universities with a report which, on the one hand, contains a series of elements for reflection to improve their actions in this area and, on the other, is a useful tool for self-revision of their own processes, their integration and their capacity to be sensitive to the demands of external agents, with the aim of contributing, as mentioned above, to the improvement of this fundamental objective in higher education.

The project has involved the participation of 68 Spanish universities, 23 of which have been directly involved in the working group preparing the report.
