The experience of higher education is at its best when there is a partnership between students, staff and HEPs. To help ensure effective collaboration, it is important that disabled students at all stages of their engagement with higher education fully share information about their condition and give consent for the HEP and course funder to use that information appropriately.
The purpose of the Disabled Student Commitment (the Commitment) is to secure an enhanced and improved experience for disabled students within higher education. The Disabled Students’ Commission (DSC) calls upon higher education providers (HEPs), Government, funders, agencies, regulators and professional, statutory and regulatory bodies (henceforth referred to as other organisations) to adopt and promote the Commitment.
