Universal Design Lab Core Values
We believe in the people we serve
We care deeply for the individuals with and without disabilities that we serve through our work. Simply put, we believe in them.
We are passionate about serving the community through universal design
We love what we do and are thankful for terrific community partnerships where we can serve the community through practicing Universal Design to make the world a more accessible place.
We focus on interventions that combine good teaching with technology, through a theory driven approach
Innovative technologies hold so much promise and are most useful when thoughtfully combined with high quality intervention methods or “good teaching”. The Universal Design Lab is focused on combining good teaching and technology through a theory driven implementation approach.
We focus our work on research and development, educational content, and community service.
We believe that research and development can bring new useful technologies and practices into existence that can make terrific differences in the lives of people with disabilities. Through rigorous research we can validate the tools and practices we use so that we as a community can know the way, go the way, and show the way. Our work is driven by close service work in the community.
The Universal Design Lab (uLab) is focused on serving the community through innovative research and development, educational content at PSU and beyond, and community service through various local partnerships.
