Universal Design for Learning is not widely used in the area of postsecondary STEM programs. The purpose of this literature review was to synthesize the empirical literature using Universal Design for Learning in postsecondary STEM programs for all learners. The criteria for this review was empirical literature in peer reviewed journals published after 2006.
