Abstract

To increase the number of culturally responsive special education university faculty, NAU developed distance education doctoral programs, Faculty for Inclusive Rural/Multicultural Special-educator Training (FIRST) and Leaders in Exceptional-education Addressing Diversity (LEAD). These faculty will be able to effectively address Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Exceptional (CLDE) student issues by conducting research, developing policies, and preparing special education teachers to appropriately serve the needs and ultimately improve the lives of Mexican-American and Native American students with disabilities.
