"Universal design for learning (UDL) is a framework to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all people based on scientific insights into how humans learn." (CAST, 2018)

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) strives to design inclusive learning environments that enable participation of all learners through flexible routes for learning. It offers principles and guidelines for curriculum design, teaching methods, materials and assessments that work for all students based on their unique strengths and needs. UDL recognizes that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to creating inclusive learning environments and strives to prevent barriers, protect students’ rights to equitable opportunities, and support academic success for all students.

Below is a list of learning opportunities and resources available to faculty and staff to guide the integration of UDL.
