Universal Design for Learning and Accessibility

Since online learning is evolving at an increasing pace thanks to newly introduced technologies and new online delivery methodologies, there is increased importance being placed on accessibility in online classes and the need to embed Universal Design for Learning elements in our classes to create a flexible and supportive learning environment for all students.

Promoting Radical Inclusion of Disabilities in Education Award

In 2015, Bellevue College created the DRC’s PRIDE (Promoting Radical Inclusion of Disabilities in Education) Award, with the goal of recognizing Bellevue College faculty or staff who go above and beyond accessibility and actively work toward inclusivity and celebration of people with disabilities as part of what makes BC diverse. Each quarter BC employees are acknowledged for their outstanding work to help move Bellevue College toward an institution more welcoming, supportive, and celebratory for people with disabilities, thus creating a more equitable educational experience.

Neurodiversity Navigators In 2011, Bellevue College created the Autism Spectrum Navigators program to help autistic students successfully gain access to campus programs and services. Students in the program utilize a network of support, including meetings each week with trained peer mentors and participation in cohort classes along with their chosen programs of study. Today, “As an educational program of the Center for Career Connections as part of the R.I.S.E. Learning Institute, the Neurodiversity Navigators (formerly Autism Spectrum Navigators) program offers educational opportunities along with individualized advocacy and access services for Neurodivergent Bellevue College students. Students who have met the College admission requirements must fill out an application form and follow the steps on the Next Steps flyer by the deadlines listed. Go to our Future Students page for more information.”
