College/Department Highlights

The Center for Persons with Disabilities is Utah’s federally designated University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD). The CPD was established in 1972, and was the first UCEDD program in the U.S. to focus on the educational and social needs of children and adults with disabilities. The CPD has since grown into one of the largest UCEDD programs in the nation and is recognized as a pioneer in research, training, technical assistance, and services for children and adults with disabilities, families, and the professionals who serve them.

 

The CPD is committed to hiring qualified people with disabilities, veterans, and individuals from diverse communities and backgrounds. We recognize that diversity makes us stronger, and we welcome applicants who bring something different and unique to our organization. We value creativity, loyalty, and hard work. We believe that we can change the world and make it a better, more inclusive place for everyone and we want to hire people who also believe that they can make a difference. We have high standards and we hire exceptional people.

CPD Mission:

We are working together to create inclusive communities and improve the lives of children and adults with disabilities and their families through sustainable innovation, collaborative research, responsive service, and interdisciplinary training and education.

CPD Values:

We Innovate: We lead by developing dynamic, sustainable, forward-thinking programs and services.

We Include: We demonstrate how to effectively work toward inclusive communities in our planning, programs, and services. We celebrate diversity in ability, race, ethnicity, culture, language, gender, sexual orientation, politics, and religion.

We Collaborate: We forge partnerships. Working together makes us more effective and responsive to the current needs of our clients and communities.

We Care: We do what we do because we care. We are making the world a better place for people with disabilities and their families.
