Sharing and Learning

To support our mission, we engage in the following activities designed to expand the field of Universal Design for Learning (UDL).


Supporting the development and use of UDL best practices


Working toward greater interdisciplinary understanding


Enabling collaboration among education stakeholders

We believe the traditional one-size-fits all model of education is outdated and broken. We believe our future is directly tied to the next generation of learners.  We believe in the power of networking all education stakeholders.

Our mission is to support the design of future-ready learning environments that are equitable, beneficial, and meaningful for all learners.
