Inclusive Design is one of the most important design movements of this era; as demographics change throughout the world, it promises to gain increasing significance. Despite this global trend, architecture programs in U.S. universities have been slow to incorporate inclusive design into curricula. The State University of New York at Buffalo is an exception, and has offered a formal Master of Architecture – Inclusive Design since 2006. This paper describes obstacles to starting UD graduate programs, challenges and successes of the Buffalo program, and recommendations for ways to grow additional UD programs in architecture.
