Grossmont College Accessibility at Ed Roberts Campus Discussion Questions

Question Description

Alternate Assignment #3:

ACCESSIBILITY EVALUATION

THE ED ROBERTS CAMPUS

10 points

As we have discussed in class, there are many ways to make our community more inclusive and accessible. Unfortunately, accessibility is often an afterthought in the engineering, design, and building process of community environments. This results in the exclusion of people with disabilities in life activities that non-disabled people take for granted. The hope with this assignment is to open your eyes to the ways that our community can be accessible and inaccessible for people with disabilities, and the ways that we can be proactive in ensuring that accessibility features are present within our communities. (Remember: Accessibility is not only for those with visible disabilities but also for invisible disabilities such as heart conditions, anxiety disorders, etc.)

You will explore the concept of universal design and the accessibility features of The Ed Roberts Campus at UC Berkeley via two short videos:

The following considerations will benefit your evaluation and will contribute to a higher grade on this assignment. Things to consider as you answer the above questions:

  • Can a person who uses a wheelchair access all of the same areas that a nondisabled individual can access?
  • Are accessible alternatives clearly and visibly marked?
  • Are elevators and lifts in working order wherever there are stairs?
  • Are ramps located and angled in such a way that it is not overly burdensome for someone who uses a wheelchair to maneuver to them and on them?
  • Are the accessible alternatives comparable in distance such that the person using a wheelchair does not need to go far out of their way to arrive at the destination?
  • Are signs readable in Braille for people who are blind?
  • Are audio cues available for people who are blind (such as crosswalks)?
  • Are sign language interpretation and/or closed or open captioning available for any audio or video features?
  • Are there enough accessible parking spots and are they actually accessible? If they are not accessible, is it because someone is parked in them illegally? Has someone put shopping carts or scooters or other obstacles in the spots? Or are they designed poorly, making them inaccessible?
  • Are there enough accessible walkways, curb cuts, and other accessibility features? If they are not accessible, is it because someone has blocked them/created barriers? Or is it due to poor design?
  • Do accessibility features that benefit people with disabilities also benefit those who do not have disabilities? If so, how?
