Disability in higher education is an underexplored area of pedagogical practice. This website contributes to an on-going dialogue about issues of disability in post-secondary institutions, and most importantly, offers recommendations for creating an access-centered learning environment in the humanities classroom. An access-centered University promotes intersectional access. This means creating and communicating content to the broadest audience possible.
Washington University in Saint Louis (WashU) provides several resources for students with disabilities through the Disability Resources center, but it is essential that instructors share the responsibility of creating an accessible learning and work environment for people with disabilities on our campus.
The information on this website is research-based and revised as new findings are made available. If you have a recommendation or would like to contribute to the project, please contact Lacy Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
