Mission

The Center for Adaptive Technology promotes the benefits of Universal Design for Learning by providing technology and support to all members of the Southern Connecticut State University community, as well as to the community at large.  Recognizing the fact that not all students learn the same way, the Center provides multiple approaches to learning and expression through a variety of technology solutions.
