The STARS Inclusive Adolescent Education Program was developed with a $1.2 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Special Education Programs by School of Education Professors and Co-PIs Leslie Soodak, PhD, and Roberta Wiener, EdD, and is based on in-depth research. Drs. Soodak and Wiener were leaders of a program development effort that involved a large number of School of Education adolescent and special education faculty.

The STARS Inclusive Adolescent Education Program is the first truly integrated program of its kind in the metropolitan area, and is one of few fully integrated inclusive secondary teacher education programs nationally.
