Anyone studying at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki may request the assistance of special university services to solve various problems they may face during their studies. They can also volunteer to offer their services to other colleagues or fellow students in need.
Social Policy and Health Committee
The Social Policy and Health Committee (SPHC) aims to create conditions that will make the University an accessible area to all members of the university community, by giving priority to space (and therefore knowledge) accessibility to disabled persons.
For this reason, qualified members of the teaching staff can train students with visual impairment to use electronic equipment linked with Braille printers installed in some of the University libraries. Also, the SPHC, to its best, tries to ensure the granting of books with voice output to these students.
The SPHC also provides a bus for disabled persons, to facilitate their movement in campus for classes and exams during the academic year. In this context the University has created a Program for the Promotion of Self-Help, which is basically run by a team of volunteers, the majority of whom are students. Email: [email protected]
The Social Policy and Health Committee established the institution of Voluntary Blood Donation, which also led to the creation of a Blood Bank in AHEPA hospital. Since May 2007, a second Blood Bank was founded too, in the School of Physical Education in Serres with the collaboration of the Social Policy and Health Committee and the General Hospital of Serres. Voluntary blood donation takes place twice a year during the months of November and April, at the Ceremony Hall of Aristotle University. The immediate target is to cover all needs for blood through voluntary blood donation, which currently covers 40% of total needs.
