ChildrenFaculty in the Department of Special Education and Department of Educational Psychology received six Utah State Board of Education (USBE) grant awards to increase training opportunities for future educators in special education for the state of Utah. These awards represent 54% of the total funding that was available from the USBE for 2020-21.
