State Leaders of Universal Design for Learning in Education is a community of practice established in 2015. The purpose of SLUDLE is to develop, support and maintain collaborative work among universal design for learning leaders designated by state departments of education in a way that increases awareness and an understanding of universal design for learning as an instructional framework to increase student educational participation and academic achievement. SLUDLE seeks to promote alignment and common understanding, ensures accountability for services, and explores issues of importance through Committees of Common Interest. In addition, SLUDLE seeks to build connections with other organizations that lead to the provision of quality services that promote participation and high achievement for all students.
Our mission is to design, develop and share resources among participating states in an effort to capitalize on common interests and initiatives that are deployed at a state level.
