The Center for Persons with Disabilities at Utah State University


With your help, look what we can do...

On October 7th, 2011 we dedicated a new therapeutic playground at the CPD which is the direct result of private donations. This playground serves as a powerful example of the type of impact the generosity of our friends can have when combined with the talent and dedication of our staff. Whether you are a donor, volunteer or staff member of the CPD your support has been critical to our success over the last 40 years. In the coming months we hope you will decide to renew your support of this Center and ensure its important work continues for the next 40 years.

Bryce Fifield - CPD DirectorIn 2012 the CPD will be celebrating its 40th anniversary. It is important that we honor the accomplishments of the past, and the courage, vision and perseverance of all who have worked to advance the mission of this center over the last four decades. We also have a profound responsibility to continue their legacy. We believe there is no better way to do that, than to mark this milestone by renewing our commitment to providing vital resources for persons with disabilities for the next 40 years, and beyond. We are also asking our friends and our community to give back to the programs that have been so important to those whose lives have been impacted by disability. With your support, not only will these programs be able to continue to serve our community, but they will be able to grow and serve even more people.

Anonymous donors give $45,000 for autism research.

In October, three anonymous donors gave $45,000 to the CPD's Biomedical Laboratory to continue its cutting-edge immunogenetic research. The CPD's lab is one of several in the country dedicated to learning about the genetic link to autism spectrum disorders, the fastest growing disability category among children. Funds will support student and faculty researchers in their collaboration with other university research labs throughout the United States.
