Centers for Enhancement of Education.
The Center for Enhancement of Education organizes seven specialized centers within the School of Education and Human Services to provide faculty and students with the opportunity for research, development, and public service activities that complement and supplement classroom teaching. Each of the seven centers stresses one of the following functions: (1) provide assessment and training of the disabled for independent living; (2) apply technology to help individuals with disabilities in solving or alleviating vocational and other problems; (3) offer marriage and family counseling and psychological assessment and counseling; (4) collect, develop, and disseminate information in vocational rehabilitation; (5) serve both disabled individuals and industry in placement and retention of the disabled; (6) conduct research and short-term training on issues related to transitional, sheltered, and alternative employment models; and (7) provide assessment services for persons with disabilities. The centers allow students to experience a full range of professional experiences and provide a stimulating environment for faculty growth and development. They also provide direct services to individuals in need. All are fiscally self-sustaining and are gaining international recognition. (MSE)
