Last week, the Disability and Inclusion (DIS) Office hosted Dr. Millicent Adjei, Director of Diversity & International Programs, and Mr. Casper Annie, Director of Logistics & Facilities Management, from Ashesi University, who were visiting USIU-Africa to benchmark on the disability inclusion at the university.
The 2-day visit included paying a courtesy call to the Interim VC, Dr. Lola Odubekun, and meeting with the Disability Inclusion Committee to understand the comprehensive development process of the 2022 USIU-Africa Disability Inclusion Policy. The duo also visited the Disability Inclusion Resource Center to experience accessible assistive technology and the support it affords to students with various disabilities on campus.
As part of the comprehensive campus tour, the team also met with stakeholders across various units on campus to understand their supportive work in disability mainstreaming. The USIU-Africa Disability and Inclusion (DIS) Office coordinates and facilitates services for students, staffs and faculty and USIU-Africa community with medical, physical, psychological, and learning disabilities.
