Mission

The mission of the Department of Exceptional Student Education is to provide leadership in our local, state, national and international communities in the areas of teaching, research, and service. Faculty and Department efforts promote research-based practices that reflect changing societal needs of people with disabilities, their families, and the professionals and organizations who work with them. This is accomplished by bringing faculty, students, and members of our various communities together to improve the quality of education for all members of an increasingly diverse, technological, inclusive, and global society.
