Southeast Technical Assistance & Continuing Education (TACE) Center
The mission of the Technical Assistance and Continuing Education (TACE) Center Region IV is to provide technical assistance (TA) and continuing education (CE) activities that meet the strategic goals and program performance needs of state Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) agencies and their community partners.
This is accomplished through the creation of and partnership with a resource network of subject matter experts within and outside the southeast region. The resource network is comprised of nationally recognized consultants, private and non-profit entities, and educators and researchers from universities such as University of Tennessee, Mississippi State University, University of South Florida, University of North Carolina, South Carolina State University, Hofstra University, and Syracuse University. Assistance is provided by means of a variety of modalities customized to the needs of the southeast VR community, including on-site training and facilitation, webinars and learning communities, interactive networks and conference presentations.
The areas of emphasis for the Southeast TACE are: employment outcomes for individuals whose disabilities are considered most significant; transition from school to work; executive leadership development; and core capacity building for VR agencies and their community partners.
The Southeast Region TACE Center is funded by the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA), of the U.S. Department of Education.
