The meeting which took place at the SRC Union Building was to give students with special needs the platform to share their challenges regarding life on campus.
It is also to provide the leadership of the SRC the opportunity to better understand the needs of students with disabilities in order to appropriately deal with them.
Addressing the student, the President noted that the council is committed to ensuring that students with special needs also experience a fulfilling campus life like any other students.
In this regard, she stated that the SRC has set up a group comprising of abled students for the purpose of assisting their colleagues with special needs to have a stress free stay on campus.
Some students with disabilities present at the meeting commended the SRC for such an incredible initiative.
Gerald Daakyehene, a visually impaired political science student who is currently vying for the position of the president of the SRC, intimated that, in as much as abled persons are capable, so are students with disabilities.
He added that, "No student should down play their capabilities".
Others also shared their sentiments regarding life in the university community ranging from locating lecture halls and other places. And the unfriendly nature of the university community to students with disabilities.
They appealed to the SRC to ensure that the university put measures and structures in place to make the university community disability friendly.
Their recommendations include: having sign posts alerting drivers of such students, educating abled students on disability related issues, easy accessibility to lecture halls and halls of residence.
Mr. Amuzu, the guest for the program also educated students on the need to accept, tolerate and love students with disabilities as they are, and to keep on assisting, supporting and encouraging them in all their endeavors.
