ACCESS-ed and UDE

The ACCESS-ed Project focuses on several campus interventions to improve the postsecondary education success of students with disabilities. However, as we know, the typical intervention models provide service only to students with declared disabilities. Thus, to address the fundamental reality that many students with disabilities do not declare their disability or may not have been diagnosed as having a disability, the ACCESS-ed Project includes an emphasis on Universal Design in Education. UDE also has the side benefit of making education more accessible for all students, including those students at risk, but without disabilities, such as English as second language students and even students without any educational challenges.

A lot of people with a disability say, "This is who I am. I don't come here hoping my disability will go away, but because I want to participate."
