The Center for Innovation in Transition and Employment provides leadership in the College and Graduate School of Education and across the region for developing successful transition practices which lead to positive outcomes for people with disabilities.
Organizationally, the Center administers transition personal development and demonstration grants and serves as an interdepartmental collaborative that supports interdisciplinary activities across special education, career and technical education, and rehabilitation. With almost twenty years of experience in providing interdisciplinary programs in transition, the Center developed many collaborative relationships for developing new and experienced teachers, coordinators, and leadership personnel.
The Center houses several research and demonstration projects that serve as regional transition resources for youth and families, policy makers, and professionals. The Center provides a rich array of leadership activities to graduate students in which students use state-of-the-art practices learned in classes in a curriculum which combines theory and practice.
