CRDEUL closes its doors, but keeps web site open

After twelve years in existence, on June 30, 2008, the Center for Research on Developmental Education and Urban literacy, which was created, funded and encouraged by the former General College, was closed by the College of Education and Human Development. Our Web site, with links to downloadable copies of our publications, etc., will remain active for researchers in the field.

Our latest book

CRDEUL and the Pedagogy and Student Services for Institutional Transformation (PASS IT) project are pleased to announce the publication of Pedagogy and Student Services for Institutional Transformation: Implementing Universal Design in Higher Education. This book builds upon the pervious success of Curriculum Transformation and Disability: Implementing Universal Design in Higher Education, published by CRDEUL in 2003 and now out of print.
