Laura Bozeman - Doctorate: Special Education, 1998
My preparation at UT provided a foundation that allowed me to travel to Taiwan, New Zealand, China, Australia, Scotland to help prepare teachers in the unique area of visual impairment and multiple disabilities. I recently returned to the US to direct the academic programs in visual impairment at the University of Massachusetts at Boston. We are the only pre-service program in visual impairment in the New England region and serve all six New England states via Blackboard Vista and face to face classes. As a part of the Northeast Regional Center for Vision Education (NERCVE), we have roots in the Institute for Community Inclusion (ICI). A critical part of our program is community engagement. We have tremendous support through State Liaisons and community professionals.
