Mission

The Zarrow Center for Learning Enrichment facilitates successful secondary and postsecondary educational, vocational and personal outcomes for students and adults with disabilities. ZC faculty, staff, and students do this through self-determination oriented evaluation, research, development, transition education instruction, and dissemination of best educational and support practices. The ZC also prepares undergraduate and graduate students to assume leadership roles in schools, universities, and support organizations.

Vision

The Zarrow Center facilitates student-directed educational, employment and adult living outcomes for individuals with disabilities, fosters innovative self-determination oriented instruction and transition education practices, and prepares educational leaders.

History

Generous gifts from the Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation and the Maxine and Jack Zarrow Family Foundation, which the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education matched, endowed the Zarrow Center for Learning Enrichment. In the fall semester of 2000, Dr. James Martin became the first Zarrow Chair and serves as the Zarrow Center Director. OU President David Boren gave the Zarrow Center dedication address on May 1, 2001.
