Associate Dean for Academic Affairs of  RIT/ACMT's Dubrovnik campus, Dr. Larisa Buhin Loncar, participated in the presentation of handbooks written to promote equal access to higher education for students with disabilities, held on June 13th, 2012 in Dubrovnik.


The handbooks were created through a Tempus project EduQuality headed by University of Zagreb with five other Croatian universities participating along with international partners from University of Gothenburg, Aarhus University, Masaryk University, and University of Strathclyde. The series consists of eight handbooks that address topics ranging from general guidelines, accessibility, learning outcomes, access to information, international mobility, leisure time to students' psychosocial needs.

Dr. Buhin Loncar co-edited the Mentorship and Consulting handbook and also authored a chapter on Loneliness in the Students' Psychosocial Needs. The handbooks are intended to be used by both teaching and non-teaching staff in order to better meet the needs of students with disabilities in higher education. The handbooks are unique not only in content since they cover the entire range of student life, but also in their design. They are designed and laid out following international standards for accessibility of information for people with visual impairments. Handbooks will be available on campus in Dubrovnik and Zagreb (in Croatian) and will soon be available on-line in English.
