The UCEDD as a Model for Transformative Higher Education: An Engagement Approach
This poster demonstrates how the UCEDD structure and approach to disability rights and inclusion provide a natural engagement model for interdisciplinarity, and a structure for major higher education innovation. Through detailing a current initiative which synthesizes disability studies and research within an interdisciplinary health and well-being agenda, it illustrates an engagement model to be used by UCEDDs to integrate disability studies, research, and community partnerships throughout institutions of higher education.
