Universal Design Infusion of Technology and Evaluation for Accessible Campuses of Higher Education (UD ITEACH) is the third generation Demonstration Grant To Ensure that Students With Disabilities Receive a Quality Higher Education, housed in the R2D2 Center at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee. This website describes the Project activities and strategies. Weekly discussions are posted that pertain to issues of infusing Universal Design in Higher Education, including designing and providing accessible learning technologies, questioning what defines universally design and environments, and determining "Best Practices" for infusing universal design on campuses. Development of this site is ongoing, but users are invited to join the discussion topics.

It took me several years of struggling with the heavy door to my building, sometimes having to wait until a person stronger came along, to realize that the door was an accessibility problem, not only for me, but for others as well. And I did not notice, until one of my students pointed it out, that the lack of signs that could be read from a distance at my university forced people with mobility impairments to expend a lot of energy unnecessarily, searching for rooms and offices. Although I have encountered this difficulty myself on days when walking was exhausting to me, I interpreted it, automatically, as a problem arising from my illness (as I did with the door), rather than as a problem arising from the built environment having been created for too narrow a range of people and situations.
