|Since the fall of 1985, the Blumberg Center for
Interdisciplinary Studies in Special Education has engaged in collaborative
activities with ISU Bayh College of Education faculty, students, and staff.
Such efforts focus on benefiting individuals with exceptionalities through
research, program development, and outreach activities across the state.
Various state and federal grants, as well as endowments from Benjamin and Fannie Blumberg, have supported our partnerships. Through these collaborative efforts, the Center provides service to families and educators who support individuals with exceptionalities. While the Blumberg Center is housed in the Bayh College of Education on the Indiana State University campus, it serves families throughout the state.
