Welcome, Special Education alumni and friends!
Thank you for visiting the Department of Special Education's online home! As alumni, you have helped us build one of the top special education graduate programs in the country, and it is your collective effort across the nation and world that has enhanced the lives of people with disabilities and their families. Here the Department offers the latest news and information that is of interest to alumni. Be sure to also browse the Department's 50th Anniversary page to learn how the Department is celebrating this wonderful achievement!
The Department is in the process of collecting reflections and professional advice from our alumni. The online survey requests an update on personal and professional information as well as recollections of memories and words of advice for our current students. Be sure to check out our survey page for more information and to help us build a more robust picture of our alumni's experiences.
For visitors who are in search of a range of resources from faculty publications to national organizations, visit our Professional Resources page to find the most up-to-date information on professional special education assistance.
