Mission & vision

Center for Promoting Research to Practice
Mission and vision - CPRP
We generate new knowledge that changes lives.


To generate new knowledge that will favorably impact the lives of individuals with or at-risk for disabilities and promote the use of evidence-based best practices by schools, families, and community service providers.


The Center for Promoting Research to Practice intends to develop practical solutions to real problems for individuals at-risk or who have disabilities. All too often research that is created for these individuals remains at the development level and is not disseminated to the people who need it most. Using an interdisciplinary approach and establishing a living laboratory through partnerships with schools, parents, families, community service and support providers, the Center aims to translate research to practice.
