This five-section publication is the final report of Northern Virginia's George Mason University on its federally financed Dean's Grant Project of 1980-83. Section I of the report, "Four Views on Mainstreaming," gives an indication of the degrees of faculty awareness of the educational needs of handicapped individuals evident at the beginning of the project's second year. Section II, "Raising Awareness," contains edited transcripts of representative presentations made available to the faculty for informational purposes. The third section, "Reshaping Teacher Education," contains edited transcripts of presentations and copies of articles developed, for the most part, as course projects. Section IV, "Maintaining the Momentum," contains edited presentations given at the fourth retreat. The final section, "Analysis: Was the Gain Worth the Grind?," discusses evaluation of the project.
