At Poznan University of Technology, a school for everyone, disabled students enjoy “equal rights and equal responsibilities” - the same as all other students. The support provided by the University is not any type of relief or privilege – it is only a sort of compensation for limitations arising from their disability, which equalises chances and removes barriers to education on terms of full participation in academic life. It is assumed that a disabled student is able to meet the requirements of educational process of the University and overcome the architectonic, social, psychological and transportation issues in autonomous and independent student life.
Full accessibility of the technical University for students with different disabilities is an ideal the the system of education and the University’s infrastructure is constantly trying to reach. Disabled students themselves define the needs to be met to help them overcome barriers caused by disabilities.
The Rector’s delegate for disabled persons is a guardian of disabled students and administrator. His responsibilities include advising and mediation in students’ contacts with Deans, Pro-rectors, academics and the University’s administration, identification of the needs and finding possibilities to meet them using the University’s resources or obtaining necessary funds.
