1 Korydon Smith, Ed.D., M.Arch. Associate Professor School of Architecture + Planning Developing the Inclusive Design Graduate Research Group: Reflections on a UD-Focused Architecture Program at a Public University

2 Design is neither an intellectual nor a material affair, but simply an integral part of the stuff of life. – Walter Gropius I see the task of architecture as the defense of the authenticity of human experience. – Juhani Pallasmaa We shape our buildings; thereafter, our buildings shape us. – Winston Churchill Recall the face of the poorest and weakest man you have seen, and ask yourself if this step you contemplate is going to be any use to him. – Mahatma Gandhi

3 Today, there are 100 million people homeless. What are you doing about it? In some countries, more than 70% of women are the victims of violence. What are you doing about it? More than 20,000 children died today. What are you doing about it? One thing is to feel bad…Another thing is to be taken by “just rage” and engage in political projects for substantive transformation of reality. – Paulo Freire, Pedagogy of the City

4 In the context of universal design research and education: What are the most unique/exemplary characteristics of your institution and/or program? What are the systemic, institutional, programmatic, and student challenges do you face? What opportunities and solutions have you found most effective?
