The Tarjan Center, a University Center for Excellence in Disabilities Education, Research and Service, is a catalyst for collaboration, innovation, and systems change to advance the self -determination and inclusion of all people with disabilities.

We serve as a bridge between the resources of the university and local, state, and international organizations, agencies, policy makers, people with disabilities and their families.
