Gallaudet University actively engages in joint-venture enterprises to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in the public realm by leveraging university aspirations to create a more socially-just society. In this session, we'll share how Gallaudet's 2022 campus master plan motto 'From Isolation to Innovation' inspires mixed-use redevelopment to serve as a bridge between languages and social barriers. Come learn how you can facilitate agency for all by using our model for leveraging campus assets to develop more equitable space and improve the wellbeing of your campus community.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Engage a broader diversity of voices to help imagine a more inclusive design for campus environments.
  2. Be mindful of dimension, form, light, material, texture, and color in order to shape environments that reflect different histories, abilities, and ways of experiencing the world.
  3. Explain how to create adaptive environments designed for those with disabilities while envisioning an inclusive environment that ultimately works for everyone.
  4. Describe an appropriate campus environment for users whose interactions must rely on visual and tactile communication.
