Banfield-Hardaway, Stacey. “Universal Instructional Design: Tools For Creating An Inclusive            Educational Experience.” Vermont Connection 31.(2010): 21-28. Education Source. Web. 5 Feb. 2016.


In her article, “Universal Instructional Design: Tools for Creating an Inclusive Educational Experience”, Stacey Banfield-Hardaway, a St. Lawrence University graduate with a B.A. in Sociology and Educational Studies, states that collegiate “campus community members must evaluate the degree to which the campus environment and social climate are welcoming to students with disabilities”. She uses secondary research from a number of creditable sources, such as the World Health Organization and the Center for Universal Design, to increase her ethos throughout the article. The purpose of this article is to “address the needs of students with disabilities and deconstruct prejudice against them”. The author’s intended audience is collegiate administrations who are responsible for constructing an inclusive campus for its students. This source is useful for my purposes because it provides suggestions for how colleges can improve the accessibility and “inclusiveness” of their campuses.
