Universal Design Assessment and Certification Guidelines by Progressive AE in partnership with Disability Inclusion Solutions Released

October 28, 2019

In partnership with Progressive AE and Disability Inclusion Solutions, the GUDC has developed a program for sites and buildings to receive certification based on best practices from a global perspective. Going forward, using the GUDC guidelines as a reference, we have instituted a program for Universal Design certification that establishes a benchmark for organizations  who realize the value of creating a truly accessible and inclusive work environment.  It starts with utilizing our custom Universal Design assessment checklist as the keystone document which identifies strategies and priorities including:

  • Strategies that are no or low cost with high impact to the user and organization, and
  • Strategies that are higher cost with relative positive return and impact to the user and organization

With this step-by step guide, learn how to become certified.
