  • offer you specific arrangements and solve your accessibility issues by arranging individualized teaching support
  • liaise with the different school departments and services
  • provide guidance and support with your administrative and academic procedures

Awareness raising and training

The school works in close collaboration with a student steering committee composed of representatives from the Corporation Council and students from the MSc in Management – Grande Ecole program. Some of them are involved in a "Maker's Project" aimed at designing and rolling out training modules and awareness-raising campaigns on the subject of disability.

To provide more effective support for students with a disability and facilitate their inclusion, training modules will be organized for the SER representatives on association committees on the three campuses in France and the disability representatives within the school.

The rest of the emlyon community will be made more aware of and involved in disability issues through lectures and workshops, the program of which will be issued shortly.
