Chonbuk National University has been rated ‘excellent’ for its educational welfare support for disabled students by the Korean National Institute of Special Education recently.
In order to encourage the improvement of higher education conditions for students with disabilities, the institute conducted a survey of 348 universities nationwide in three areas: student selection, teaching and learning, and facilities, through a three-step process including written evaluation, on-site visitation, and comprehensive evaluation.
Through the operation of university regulation, CBNU has been providing an assistance system, scholarship programs, assistive devices, and so on. In specific, students with disabilities are provided with special bedrooms, and they have priority when applying for dormitories.
Also, the university recently created an unobstructed walkway to build a pleasant environment for people with disabilities.
“We will spare no effort to minimize the chances of inconvenience so that these students enjoy their school life,” said Sang Yeol Park, the director of the Student Support Center for Disabilities.
