UDL and Equity Consultant Development Program

July 2024- June 2025

This intensive, year-long journey is structured around a cohort model designed to cultivate a supportive and collaborative environment. Tailored for individuals eager to deeply engage with Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and equity, the program aims to develop the next generation of consultants equipped to navigate and influence these critical areas. With only 5 spots available annually, this highly competitive program seeks to transform passionate individuals into skilled professionals capable of driving change in educational practices.

This program demands dedication and hard work. Participants are expected to meet monthly milestones, participate actively in cohort meetings (or review recordings if unable to attend live), and contribute thoughtful reflections to foster a collaborative learning environment. Deadlines are non-negotiable, mirroring the consultancy landscape's demand for timeliness and excellence.
