Friends of Special Education

The Department of Special Education has been preparing students at the doctoral, masters, and undergraduate level for many years. As members of a small department within a very large university, our students form lifelong friendships, mentor relationships, and collegial bonds that last well beyond their time as a student. Through experiences as a student in the Department of Special Education and then after graduation you have built a relationship with others dedicated to supporting research, teaching, and service activities that will ultimately improve the lives of individuals with disabilities. Alumni and friends of the Department of Special Education can be found around the world - and we can help you find ways to connect with them and to stay a part of the Department of Special Education and College of Education family.  Learn more about these proud graduates in our NEWS...
