EEC Receives Skunkworks Award

Jan 22, 2015

Congratulations to Dr. Robert Ayres from the Education Evaluation Center (EEC) at TRI for receiving a WOU Skunkworks award in collaboration with the Office of Disability Services (ODS) here at Western. What is skunkworks? A skunkworks (also known as Skunk Works) is a small group of people who work on a project in an unconventional way. The group's purpose is to develop something quickly with minimal management constraints.

Funding from this award will enable the EEC and ODS to develop, field test, refine and implement a screening and referral protocol for WOU students who are struggling academically and are concerned they may have a learning disorder. The evaluation services which are currently provided on campus through the Education Evaluation Center help students with diagnosis and obtaining support services from the Office of Disability Services. The aim of this protocol is to impact student’s persisting in their efforts to complete their academic goals by supporting students before they fail academically.
