Jedlicka recognized for expanding access in learning

Sabrina Jedlicka, along with five other Lehigh faculty members, were recognized by the Office of Disability Support Services and the Peer Mentor program for their work in supporting students with disabilities by providing equal access in the form of Universal Design for Learning (UDL).

UDL provides a blueprint for creating instructional goals, methods, materials, and assessments that can be customized and adjusted for individual needs. Cheryl Ashcroft, Assistant Dean of Academic Support Services, said that each faculty member “demonstrates the ability to educate all students by employing multiple forms of teaching techniques and strategies.”

The professors were honored at an annual, year-end luncheon held in the Asa Packer Dining Room. On hand were members of the staff of the Office of Academic Support Services and the Peer Mentors Program, both of which assist first-year students with the transition from high school to a rigorous academic university.

Jedlicka, an assistant professor in the department of materials science and engineering, was praised for always making herself available to her students and actively encouraging her students to meet with her about related concerns. “She provides great advice on everything from coursework to major life decisions,” her nominator said.
