Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, v18 n1 p34-48 Win 2005
Sixteen disability service providers from 2-year and 4-year public and private postsecondary institutions were divided into 2 focus groups, each with 8 participants. When asked to share their perspectives on the implementation of Universal Design for Instruction (UDI) on their campus, service providers described strengths and weaknesses of UDI, potential changes to their current roles and responsibilities, and support structures they would need to promote the adoption of UDI on their campuses. Participants' comments reflected detailed knowledge about successful change agentry at the institutional level.
