Center to Help Students Transition to College
UNC Charlotte's College of Education received $12.5 million in grant funding from the U.S. Department of Education to create a new technical assistance center to help students with disabilities transition to college or careers. The center will be a partnership among UNC Charlotte and the University of Oregon, Western Michigan University, University of Kansas and Maryland-based TransCen Inc., which provides direct services to students with disabilities.
David Test, professor of special education and child development and the principal investigator for the project, explains that "We will be working with all 50 states and 10 U.S. territories to develop teacher training and professional development for workers in relevant agencies on proven strategies to achieve better outcomes for high school students who are transitioning into adulthood."
The National Technical Assistance Center on Improving Transition to Postsecondary Education and Employment for Students with Disabilities will begin formally in January 2015.
