Grants & Research
Grant funding drives important research on campus
At Landmark College, we believe that research related to teaching and learning for students with learning disabilities and other learning differences is critically important. Our campus affords a unique research environment as we educate 500 postsecondary learners representing a range of LD diagnoses. Landmark is therefore uniquely situated to make a lasting impact on learners, educators and society through meaningful, innovative scholarship and research activities. To fully utilize these strengths, we maintain an active portfolio of research projects, many of which receive grant funding.
The Grants Office at Landmark College is the hub for:
- sponsored project activities,
- identifying potential funding sources,
- assisting faculty and staff to develop compelling proposals
- overseeing administration of grant funded projects.
Grant-Funded Activities at Landmark
Over the years, Landmark College has conducted projects funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the U.S. Department of Education and other sources to pursue excellence in education through research, development, and testing of tools and strategies for students with learning disabilities, as well as by designing and implementing professional development resources for teachers at the high school and college levels.
Through these projects, Landmark College has collaborated with community colleges throughout the United States and has participated in the NSF-funded STARS Alliance (Students and Technology in Academia, Research and Service), which includes more than twenty colleges and universities, as well as the NSF-funded Alliance for Access to Computing Careers (AccessComputing), an alliance of schools and colleges with the goal of increasing the number of students with disabilities who successfully complete degrees in computing and enter the computing workforce.
With a grant from the NSF-funded EAST Alliance, Landmark College established a Universal Design Lab to promote usability and accessibility in STEM content for students with learning disabilities. The lab facilities are available for students, faculty and staff to conduct research related to the accessibility, usability and effectiveness of assistive technologies, digital content and online designs of teaching materials.
