The Campus Capacitas from the Catholic University of Valencia (Universidad Católica de Valencia – UCV) has been a key partner in the international project “Towards an Inclusive Culture and Pedagogy” promoted and coordinated by CIRAD-IFCU, with the objective of improving access to Catholic universities for students with disabilities. While the project officially came to an end in 2018, the Campus experts have continued to carry out and extend their work both in their own country and throughout the Hispanic world, largely by leading the Capacitas UCV-IFCU International Observatory.
The admirable work of the Campus has recently been recognized and rewarded by the Gravissimum Educationis Award, granted by the Pontifical Foundation Gravissimum Educationis. The Foundation was created by Pope Francis in 2015, and its educational mission is carried out within the framework of the Vatican’s Congregation for Catholic Education.
Our sincere congratulations to the Campus Capacitas team and, in particular, to our faithful collaborators, Profs. Gabriel Martínez Rico and José Tena Medialdea.
