Universal Design for Learning

Establishing a culture that consistently welcomes, promotes, and encourages diversity, equity and inclusion is part of the RUSH commitment to excellence. The Universal Design for Learning (UDL) approach is a newer educational concept that refers to the creation of curricula and/or services which inherently minimize or eliminate the need for special accommodations. The principle objective of universal design is to be an assistive framework for faculty that addresses various learning styles and needs of students with or without disability in efforts to maintain equity in education.

  • The implementation of UDL principles incurs a call to action on part of the faculty and relevant departmental professionals to incorporate accommodative and inclusive strategies that support student learning regardless of their individual needs or disability. 
  • UDL strategies that are proactively put into practice will serve to support all students' learning needs and promote an educational culture that embraces the many aspects of the human condition.
