Center for Opportunities & Outcomes for People with Disabilities
Website: http://www.tc.columbia.edu/centers/oopd

The Center for Opportunities and Outcomes for People with Disabilities confronts the challenges facing special education today through its commitment to the production of knowledge and professional expertise aimed at supporting the full inclusion of people with disabilities in society. The broad-based research, evaluation, and demonstration activities of the Center reflect an emphasis on empowering people with disabilities by increasing their capacity and opportunities for self-determination, reducing their vulnerability to victimization and abuse, and addressing the disability-related issues of culturally and ethnically diverse groups, including women and minorities. The Center encourages national and international partnerships aimed at strengthening the connection between research and policy.
