What is Universal Design?

Universal Design is a principal that promotes the design and composition of an environment so that it can be accessed, understood and used to the greatest extent possible by all people regardless of their age, size, ability or disability. If an environment is accessible, usable, convenient and a pleasure to use, everyone benefits.

The Universal Design Tour is sponsored by the Webster University Accessibility Committee. For questions or to RSVP, contact accessibilitycommittee@webster.edu.

University CenterThe University Center is known as the "living room of the University," a place for students to meet with friends, eat, attend events, watch the Gorloks in action, study and relax.
