Grace Hanson, Shiloh Blacksher, and Chara Powell conducted a breakout session presentation on "Universal Design and Student Equity" on Spring 2016 Flex Day.
Knowing she and her staff couldn't do it alone, Grace Hanson began floating the idea of a Faculty Inquiry Group (FIG) last academic year and presented the idea to participants at the 2015 Parachutes and Ladders Conference and again at the New Faculty Seminar. Shiloh Blacksher and Chara Powell, expressed interest in late October.
With future funding for FIGs unknown at this time, it is not certain how the next steps to implementation will take place, but the universal design movement at Mt. SAC will continue to charge forward.
In Spring 2016 the UDL FIG conducted a revised campus wide all-faculty survey, and presented their findings at the 2014-16 FIGs Outcomes Meeting on June 2, 2016.
