The Rehabilitation Psychology and Special Education Department faculty are at the forefront of disability advocacy research, and have been recipients of numerous grants to support their efforts. Our faculty includes international leaders in research in the areas of disability, rehabilitation psychology and rehabilitation counseling, and special education. Our students work hand in hand on projects focused on positive behavior interventions, transition outcomes for youth with disabilities, and the overall well-being of individuals with disabilities. There are many opportunities for Rehabilitation Psychology and Special Education students to engage in research at the University, School, and Department levels. If you would like to explore potential opportunities for mentorship, research project participation, or just discuss potential research opportunities in Special Education, please reach out to Dr. Kimber Wilkerson (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you would like more information on research in Rehabilitation Psychology, please reach out to Dr. Malachy Bishop (email@example.com). Feel free to contact any of the faculty to discuss options (see our faculty profiles and contact information).
