Resumen

El número de estudiantes con impedimentos en instituciones de educación superior ha ido en aumento en los últimos años. Este es el resultado de reformas inclusivas, políticas y leyes que promueven la igualdad de oportunidades en el ámbito académico y laboral. Además, para el siglo XIX la educación ya era vista como unos de los medios de desarrollo de una sociedad. Esta visión junto a la evolución de la fuerza laboral ha provocado que haya una mayor demanda de empleos especializados que requieren educación universitaria y a su vez la disminución de aquellas oportunidades de empleos para personas sin grados universitarios. Como consecuencia, la educación universitaria se ha convertido en un requisito para lograr empleos competitivos y con mayor remuneración. Los estudiantes con impedimentos requieren la eliminación de barreras en áreas identificadas como acceso limitado a los recursos institucionales, el desconocimiento y las actitudes del profesorado, así como las barreras que los propios estudiantes con impedimentos se imponen a consecuencia de la falta de apoyos y conocimientos. Es importante el desarrollo y fortalecimiento de estrategias y programas de  servicio directo a los estudiantes con impedimentos, así como adiestramientos y orientación continua a miembros de facultad. La implementación de estas estrategias debe ser realizada por el personal mejor cualificado para atender las necesidades particulares de la población de estudiantes con impedimentos.
