Why Universal Design in an Educational Setting?

This video totaling approximately 30 minutes was created by the ACCESS-ed Project as a resource promoting universal design in higher education. Instructors and students share ideas for accessibility within a classroom setting. Topics include, but are not limited to, methods of providing accessible instruction and resources that aid in the accessibility of instruction. Students with disabilities express concerns based on their experiences and explain what has worked for them. Instructors discuss how they have effectively applied universal design in their courses. This is an excellent training tool when introducing universal design to your campus.

"July 26 marks the 19th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.... the ADA's provisions include the right to seek, obtain, pursue and maintain employment without being hampered by physical or attitudinal barriers. I believe that having a job is a civil right. Those who are qualified for and want to work should not be denied that right because of an inaccessible building or an outdated set of assumptions about what they can or cannot do..."
