Mission Statement

The Eleanor and Charles Garrett Center on Transition and Disability Studies is the first of its kind in Texas to have a dedicated focus on the practitioner aspects of transition services and will serve as a dedicated gateway of information for transition team members including educators, students with disabilities, their families, and agencies and community partners. In addition to the website and other communication platforms, the Garrett Center will offer workshops and conduct research to improve services and outcomes for  children, youth and adults with disabilities.
