The mission of the Center for Community Engagement (CCE) is to work with organizations to develop, implement, and sustain programs that benefit the community. We work with an extended community. Our goal is to help provide for the intersecting needs of Arkansas State University and local, regional, state, and national organizations. Currently, the CCE is the state’s only technical assistance center for PBIS.
Response to Intervention (RTI) is a multi-component, general education model, designed to identify students who may be at risk for learning or behavior challenges, offer support, and monitor progress.
Funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), the Technical Assistance Center on PBIS supports schools, districts, and states to build systems capacity for implementing a multi-tiered approach to social, emotional and behavior support. The broad purpose of PBIS is to improve the effectiveness, efficiency and equity of schools and other agencies. PBIS improves social, emotional and academic outcomes for all students, including students with disabilities and students from underrepresented groups.
PBISApps is a not-for-profit group, developed and operated by faculty and staff at Educational and Community Supports (ECS), a research unit within the College of Education at the University of Oregon. ECS began in 1999 directed by Dr. Robert Horner and remains focused on the same mission: To implement practices resulting in positive, durable, scientifically validated change in the lives of individuals with disabilities and their families.
