IMT Atlantique has formalised its commitment to people with disabilities by signing the Handicap Charter of the Conférence des grandes écoles and by appointing two disability referees for students.
Disability-positive actions can be grouped into seven categories:
- Making campuses accessible (multi-year action plan, diagnosis/audit of accessibility conditions for people with disabilities)
- Specific measures for students (support unit, member of the @talentEgal programme)
- Specific measures for staff (RQTH, concrete help such as work station adaptations, payment of an allowance and CESU financed by IMT)
- Disability awareness (events, poster campaigns, etc.)
- Curriculum adaptation (Sustainable development and social responsibility project, inter-semester "Initiation to sign language" module, MOOC)
- Updating of the university's sports facilities
- Use of protected sector facilities where people with disabilities work in modified working conditions
