POLICIES AND RESOURCES
The Disability Unit is guided by SU policies,
some of which we list here. We have also put together other resource materials to
assist people with disabilities.
Policies and reports
Universal Design (UD) & Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
You have probably heard about these concepts. They relate to how we can design teaching, learning and our environments in ways that do not exclude people from participating. It ensures that people with disabilities are largely included in life and academically. These videos reflect on campus spaces in and out of the classroom. See how UD and UDL would make these better (or not?).
2022 Casual Day online event
Casual Day was hosted this year on 2 September 2022 with the theme #ICelebrateSA. We at SU celebrated by hosting a 1-hour online event around the theme focusing on sports.
