Universal Design Resources

Lewis & Clark’s Office of Student Accessibility Advisory Committee is working on developing resources and information related to Universal Design. If you would like to join the committee, or would like to suggest ideas or resources, please contact access@lclark.edu and we’ll get you connected with the group.
