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.

People with disabilities

Disability-positive actions can be grouped into seven categories:

  1. Making campuses accessible (multi-year action plan, diagnosis/audit of accessibility conditions for people with disabilities)
  2. Specific measures for students (support unit, member of the @talentEgal programme)
  3. Specific measures for staff (RQTH, concrete help such as work station adaptations, payment of an allowance and CESU financed by IMT)
  4. Disability awareness (events, poster campaigns, etc.)
  5. Curriculum adaptation (Sustainable development and social responsibility project, inter-semester "Initiation to sign language" module, MOOC)
  6. Updating of the university's sports facilities
  7. Use of protected sector facilities where people with disabilities work in modified working conditions
