We have been inspired by the struggles our fellow aggies face and hope to see that these challenges no longer occur.
What it does
Our team has measured and weighed the current ADA standards and found them wanting. To ensure a more inclusive campus, we are proposing a new set of regulations, directives, and statutes for buildings across campus, and possibly nationwide, to incorporate into their design. We would like to introduce the Aggie Code of Accessibility, ACA, which will produce a campus that addresses all forms of disabilities and provides accommodations for each.
How we built it
Today we have taken these standards and implemented them into the designs of both the Disability Services Building and the Entrance to Sterling Evans Library. ACA codes will not only focus on accessibility across campus, but also on mental health, quality of life, and students’ physical well being by providing healing spaces.
Challenges we ran into
A challenge for us was deciding what ideas would be the most influential to incorporate into our presentation.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Working successfully as a team and producing quality work while having a great time.
What we learned
We learned about the difficulties of those with disabilities and how to better understand and accommodate for their challenges.
What's next for TAMU ACA
To become an official accessibility standard nationwide.
