Higher education institutions were designed for white non-disabled cis-men from privileged socioeconomic backgrounds. Legal changes opened higher ed to a more diverse student population without substantive changes to the design of curriculum and educational practices. Therefore, inequities in educational outcomes persist in higher ed classrooms, policies, and infrastructure. The Design Justice Framework is an equity-centered model which starts from the perspectives of those historically marginalized when engaging in design. We will describe an example of implementing Design Justice in Higher Ed curriculum design and engage participants in small group discussions of applying the framework in their own work.
