Description

Economic disparities have long been an issue negatively impacting students in higher education. The current Covid pandemic has exaggerated these discrepancies, leading to negative educational and well-being outcomes. Using a Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework when developing syllabi, faculty can proactively prevent any barriers than may arise thus reducing barriers that may negatively impact students. While the Covid pandemic is new, many of these inclusive practices have demonstrated effectiveness in supporting diverse students and can be implemented to address many of the disparities students are currently experiencing in higher education as a result of Covid. E learning environments will also be included.
