In the fall of 2016, the "Harvard Educational Review" ("HER") published "Cross-Pollinating Culturally Sustaining Pedagogy and Universal Design for Learning: Toward an Inclusive Pedagogy that Accounts for Dis/Ability" by Federico R. Waitoller, assistant professor in the Department of Special Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and Kathleen A. King Thorius, associate professor of special education at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. In that article, the authors call for scholars of culturally sustaining pedagogy (CSP) to join with dis/abilities scholars in their work. "HER" has long sought to be a forum for important topics in education, particularly those that challenge the field to promote greater justice in schools, and saw an opportunity to continue the conversation by inviting not only several of the authors from the 2014 symposium on CSP but also additional scholars at the vanguard of work on universal design for learning (UDL) to offer their reflections on Waitoller and Thorius's main provocation: "recognition and value of all student differences" (p. 384). This article brings together the six scholars present at the moderated virtual discussion to respond to Waitoller and Thorius's article. [See the Waitoller & Thorius article at EJ1113760.]
