Social Justice in Architecture: Promoting Universal Design and Human Diversity in Architecture Education and Practice Through the Accreditation Process
This paper highlights the issues facing architecture students with disabilities as well as the lack of attention to human diversity in architectural education. It emphasizes the extraordinary demographic and societal changes that demand more enlightened designers and design. The paper identifies the existing NAAB Conditions and Procedures that can begin to address these issues and suggests slight modifications in language that can further respond to these needs. It offers some suggestions for the site visit and preparation of members of accreditation visiting teams.
