#8 of the Beloit College’s list of the mindset of incoming college class of 2014, is:

With increasing numbers of ramps, Braille signs, and handicapped parking spaces, the world has always been trying harder to accommodate people with disabilities.

Which makes me think of how much progress we have made with the creation of the Americans with Disabilities Act, 20 years ago. I can’t help but to think of the mindset of students for the class of 2034.  

  • They will likely know homes that are universally designed. 
  • Multi-generational housing will be the norm. 
  • Grab bars are likely a common item in all bathrooms.

What do you hope for the mindset of the class of 2034?
