; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ;Diversity and inclusion are core to UCD values. We seek to attract students from a wide range of social and economic backgrounds and students who reflect the true diversity of the country. And as a global university, UCD attracts international students from over 100 countries. This diversity enriches our campus, and the experience of our students. The University's strategy 2020-2024 'Rising to the Future' also recognises the importance of inclusion and diversity, in seeking to "provide an inclusive educational experience that defines international best practice and prepares our graduates to thrive in present and future societies." However, an inclusive educational experience will not be achieved by simply creating diversity in the student body. It requires that we adjust our approach in everything we do to support and encourage our students’ success. We have clearly articulated in our strategy, and further emphasised in our Education and Student Success strategy, that our goal is to "equip all our educators with the tools and resources required to embed Universal Design for Learning on an institution-wide basis". 33

The territory for this 'creative legwork' is the public spaces of Modernist Midtown Manhattan, much of which was built as a result of 1961 zoning regulations. This fieldwork creatively adopted methods usually used by other fields, and through 'legwork', changed legislation and encouraged better designs, 'When architects and planners designed by intuition, Holly gave them facts (Whyte 1969, Goldberger 1999:55)'.
