Students with disabilities and special needs can soon look forward to having greater support and interaction at the Singapore Management University.

The university has started a new effort to build a more inclusive culture and reach out to students with disabilities - the first such endeavour among educational institutions in Singapore.

Since the initiative started last year, SMU has organised workshops and conferences to discuss inclusivity, discrimination and biases.

A new undergraduate course on diversity, global citizenship and cultural intelligence is in the works, and several initiatives to support disabled students are being planned.
