DAS Vision and Mission
Vision: A world that values and respects people by fostering equal and continuing opportunities for all to fully participate in society.
Mission Statement: To foster opportunities for people with disabilities or disadvantages, DAS conducts rigorous research, evaluation, technical assistance, and dissemination that cultivate improved policies, systems, and practices for multiple stakeholders.
Active DAS Projects
The Division of Adult Studies is part of the KU Center for Research on Learning (KU-CRL).
We founded the Division in 1993 to address issues in the transition, education, employment, and quality of life
of adults with disabilities. Our staff members provide research-based information to policy makers, service providers,
individuals with disabilities, and family members that will ultimately empower people with disabilities to live
more productively and independently.
Our Materials are free, downloadable online resources based on our research of issues in
education, employment, and quality of life for adolescents and
adults with disabilities.
