Hello Mr. Kramer,

Would it be possible to add me to the mailing list for CU-Boulder’s Universal Design into University Curricula grant?

Subject: [Athen] Inclusion of accessibility & UD content in university curriculum

Dear Colleagues:

Can any of you tell me if your campus is including curriculum on accessibility and UD in tech and design courses - for example, CSCI, webdesign, etc.?

I'm doing a presentation at AccessU next week on:

Teaching Accessibility and Universal Design in Higher Education Curriculum: Benefits, Approaches and Resources

I'd like to talk about what other campuses are doing in this area. If your campus is addressing this, I'd be interested in hearing if it's systematic - a campus or department policy - or simply an effort of certain faculty.

Also, CU-Boulder recently received (re)funding for a grant on Promoting the Integration of Universal Design into University Curricula (UDUC). If any of you would like to be on the email list for this project, let me know. I'm also looking for faculty and accessibility specialists who are in interested in collaborating on this project. Let me know if you or any of your colleagues are interested. Activities of the group would include providing input on what might be the best resources to provide to encourage inclusion of a11y and UD in tech/design curriculum.

Thanks in advance,



Howard Kramer
