Staff members from the Department of Disability Services and the Department of Educational Psychology joined to develop the Disability Training Network for the Texas A&M University System from 2007-2012. The DTN was a project funded by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Postsecondary Education that is designed to provide disability training and technical assistance to the faculty, administrators, and staff within the institutions of the TAMU System. The purpose of the DTN was to develop and implement a disability training network that is designed to provide evidence-based resources, systematic training, and technical assistance to members of the TAMU System. The goal of the DTN was to improve the access, retention, and success rates of college students with disabilities. Many of the resources and materials created are still available.
