We appreciate your interests in Universal Design, a global movement of inclusive design practice initiated at NC State University College of Design. The Center for Universal Design is currently not active due to funding challenges. We are working to revive the Center, hopefully in the near future. We are unable at this time to provide assistance to your design inquiries.

Promoting the Practice of Universal Design

Sponsor: U.S. Department of Education/NIDRR

PI: Molly Follette Story

Period: 06/01/98 through 05/31/01

This project's purpose was to develop and implement an ongoing, self-supporting design evaluation and marketing program that responded to consumer and industry needs. The objectives of this project were to (1) Improve consumers' ability to recognize universal design; (2) Improve designers' ability to meet the needs of a diverse consumer base; and (3) Recognize and support industry efforts to successfully market universal design.

These objectives were achieved by (a) Developing a set of performance measures that reflect the Principles of Universal Design; (b) Determining reliability of these performance measures and implementing and testing the evaluation program; (c) Developing a plan for marketing and promoting the universal design evaluation program; and (d) Disseminating the results to appropriate audiences.
