For example, this might entail, as part of the project:-- Identifying, documenting, and disseminating information on projects that exemplify best practices in universal design and that make connections between designers, decision makers, and the disability community as well as the American public. -- Establishing alliances and developing projects with strategic partners, such as governmental or non-governmental entities whose existing infrastructure could benefit the goals of this initiative. -- Promoting an emphasis on universal design in design or design-related graduate and post-graduate programs by creating and incorporating into the curriculum universal design modules or by supporting research opportunities in universal design for students and faculty. -- Engaging public policy makers and raising their awareness so that universal design education can be integrated into their identified priorities. This might entail working with the Mayors' Institute on City Design® or other similar groups. The Arts Endowment encourages innovative ideas from the field. The proposal selected will form the basis for the Cooperative Agreement to be awarded. The Cooperator will work closely with the NEA Project Director on all phases of this project.
