(Note: much of the information on this site is still from phase I of the project. We will be updating the information and design of this site shortly).
Promoting the Integration of Universal Design into University Curricula (UDUC) was a National Endowment for the Arts’ (NEA) funded project from 2012 - 2014 which promoted the integration and creative exploration of Universal Design (UD) across university curricula through collaborative, interdisciplinary activities. Bringing together experts and faculty from a wide range of disciplines, we seek to create, share, and advance innovative UD education resources.
Phase II, which will begin in April, 2017, will share, expand and promote the resources it has developed on its own and gathered through partnerships with other institutions. Through expansion of curricula and website resources, increased outreach, and expanded formal partnerships with other national programs and institutions, UDUC will disseminate curriculum resources and provide training and forums which will increase the quality and number of courses addressing UD in university curricula nationally.
UDUC seeks to develop and promote the sharing of resources in the area of curricula, syllabi and course components. You can search for UD-related syllabi, model courses and course components from our home page.
UDUC organizes and hosts training and workshops on Universal Design, with a focus on training that provides resources for the inclusion of Universal Design in university curricula. You can view videos of workshops from Phase I of the project in our video library.

In both Phase I and II, a data collection and research component are included. In Phase II, UDUC will survey students in classes with UD components on their exposure to UD and accessibility concepts in university curriculum prior to the class. Post-class surveys will be conducted to determine the benefit of UD-related curriculum in their search for employment.
