Mission Statement

Our faculty, staff, and students engage in a variety of research-related activities, many which are integrated across community service projects thereby creating a direct link between research and practice. We collaborate with numerous community, state, national, and international partners to fulfill unique needs throughout Illinois and beyond. Our research is applied and geared to increasing our understanding of disabilities, developing and testing model programs, and translating research into policy and practice.
