Funded Research

Since 1996, I have served as Principal Investigator, Co-Principal Investigator or Project Director for 16 federal grants and state contracts directly related to my training, research, and outreach activities totaling over 19 million dollars. In addition, the state and local service delivery partnerships that have been part of my scholarship activities have had a significant impact on local communities. The Oregon Youth Transition Program (YTP), for instance, is an ongoing partnership between Oregon Vocational Rehabilitation, Oregon Department of Education, University of Oregon, and local school districts statewide. The YTP has been implemented in 90% of Oregon high schools and served over 26,000 youth with disabilities.

I have served as member and chair/co-chair of doctoral dissertation committees in Counseling Psychology (CPSY), Educational Methodology, Policy and Leadership (EMPL) and Special Education (SPED). Although my primary role has been with undergraduates, I have served on 31 dissertation committees, serving as chair or co-chair for 6 students. I have also supervised and provided mentoring for two post-doctoral research scholars.
