Creating Change through Research

We are the highest-ranked academic unit at the University of Oregon, due largely to a decades-long record of national and international research and development in special education, counseling psychology, educational leadership, and school psychology.

Our research culture is unique and highly influential because our faculty have a long tradition of translating research into effective models, methods, and measures that improve lives.

We have 43 commercial education products on the market right now. These innovations have an enduring impact in Oregon and across the nation.

Research Center

Community and Outreach Centers

We are a premier provider of educational and related clinical services to local communities and the state of Oregon. We are also a critical provider of technical assistance to international governments ranging from Saudi Arabia to New Zealand to Denmark. And hundreds of children and adults are served each year by our outreach units.

With services such as learning disability assessments, speech-language pathology, family counseling, early childhood special education, and behavioural support for children with autism among many, we support children and families of all ages—from infants and toddlers to adolescents and young adults.
