SIHO supports all Flemish higher education institutions in implementing the UN convention on the rights of persons with disabilities. The core focus is on improving the participation (inflow, through-flow, outflow) of students with a disability in Flemish higher education.

Some of our work is available in English.


Contact persons

Each higher education institution has a contact person for students with a disability. You can find an overview of all the contact persons here on http://www.siho.be/aanspreekpunten/.
