The INICO
  • The purpose of the University Institute for Community Integration is to carry out research, specialized training and consulting aimed at fostering, facilitating and improving the quality of life of people who are at a social disadvantage in different contexts throughout the course of their lives: persons with a physical, mental or sensory disability, as well as persons suffering from chronic illness or mental illness, persons from minorities or the underprivileged.
  • The Governing Board of the University of Salamanca approved the application for the creation of the Institute on 25 July, 1996, and the Ministry of Education and Culture of the Autonomous Regional Government of Castile & Leon approved the creation of the Institute on 26 September, 1997 (Decree 181/1997, Official Bulletin of the Castile & Leon, 26 September).
