The University of The Gambia Students’ Union yesterday at the Brikama Campus Secretariat held a Consultative Forum with differently abled students of the University of The Gambia.

The University of The Gambia has developed a draft disability policy that will guide its service delivery for these special needs students. Therefore, the consultative forum aimed at taking stock of the inputs and contribution of the differently abled on this draft document to have a policy that reflects their needs and aspiration. The forum is consistent with the Union’s relentless strides towards realizing an all-inclusive UTG.

The engagement was fruitful as important submissions, considerations, reservations, and recommendations were made.

The Council through its Education and Research Ministry will consolidate these inputs for onward submission to Management as position paper for consideration in the adoption of the policy.

At this juncture, the Council heartily thanks the attendees for their invaluable participation and assured them of the Union’s unreserved commitment to improving the welfare of all, especially the differently abled students.
