Developing Disability-Inclusive Higher Education Systems
Keywords:Inclusive education, students with disabilities, disability-inclusive policies, equal access
It is 25 years since the Salamanca Statement called on the international community to endorse the approach of inclusive education, including at the tertiary level. The past quarter century has witnessed the global massification of postsecondary education, yet this explosion of facilities and enrollment has largely entrenched and exacerbated the exclusion of people with disabilities from the sector. Higher education systems must become disability-inclusive in order to meet international obligations and global frameworks.
