The article deals with topical issues of ensuring accessibility and quality of higher education for disabled people. The theoretical and methodological foundations and prerequisites for the development of higher inclusive education reflect the current state of this problem in Russia. The study involved 10 universities in the North Caucasus Federal District, where more than 70% of disabled people are enrolled in the total number of students with disabilities. The results of joint work that affect the social situation in the region in the field of inclusive education for disabled people consist in high quantitative coverage of the target audience, popularization of this direction in the development of education in the media, and the formation of partnerships among project participants based on the productive use of each other’s resources. The identified problems and opportunities of the network of partner universities made it possible to outline the main trajectories of the development of higher inclusive education and to specify them in terms of relevance and feasibility.
