The purpose of this book is to introduce
readers to the concepts of Universal Design
(UD) and Universal Instructional Design
(UID). This collection of essays addresses
learning both within and outside the
classroom, recognizing the role higher
education plays in developing the “whole” person (American Council on Education,
1937, 1949; National Association of Student
Personnel Administrators, 1989). Chapters
authored by faculty members are intended to
provide insights into teaching strategies that can be implemented in a variety of
disciplines. It is hoped that these ideas will be helpful to both disabilities services staff members and faculty when exploring how to create universal learning experiences.
Similarly, concepts introduced in the student
affairs section of this book can be applied to multiple student services.
