Small Special Education Programs Caucus (SSEPC)

The Small Special Education Programs Caucus (SSEPC) is an organization devoted to helping support faculty who work in small special education programs at colleges and universities. Members also include educators who work in state departments of education, as well as educators who are employed in the private sector.

Members of SSEPC collaborate with each other in joint professional development activities, and conduct research activities aimed at investigating issues related to working in small programs. Information regarding small programs is disseminated through Caucus activities.

For more information about the Small Special Education Programs Caucus, please contact the Chair, Dr. Shantel Farnan
