Inclusive Design for Working Students

Working students who work part-time and full-time jobs outside of classes may not have the schedule flexibility that is necessary to attend student-led events. To be more inclusive to working students the use of remote accessible technology should be increased. Scheduled shifts during a student-led event may prevent working students from attending events.

Inclusively designed events for working students may look like:

  • Hybrid events that allow for remote access do not require students to be on campus to attend.
  • Using equipment such as cameras and microphones to record events allows for asynchronous access when a working student has time to watch the event.
  • Make event materials such as agenda, presentation slides, and other resources mentioned available after the event.
  • Upload event recordings to streaming platforms such as YouTube with accurate captions and/or transcripts.
