COEHD Research Centers

TEAM Autism Research Center

UTSA's TEAM Center is a university-based applied behavior analysis (ABA) clinic to serve the needs of children with autism and other intellectual disabilities in South Texas. Applied behavior analysis is a systematic approach to environmental modification for the purposes of influencing socially important behavior to a meaningful degree. The purpose of the TEAM Center is to accentuate the contextfor behavior.


The Center for Research and Policy in Education (CRPE)

The CRPE aligns with UTSA's vision to move into the ranks of premier research universities in the nation. Further, this Center provides the vehicle in which faculty in the College of Education and Human Development (COEHD) can engage in thematic research within a single administrative structure that provides the space, resources and support to carry out a formal research program. The goal is for faculty to view this Center as the intellectual space in which to engage in collaborative research that seeks to expand human potential especially in educational settings throughout the P-20 system.


The Center for Inquiry of Transformative Literacies (CITL)

Our research partnerships with local school districts are grounded in a shared vision to improve literacy instruction. As a result, we engage in "design research" partnerships; our partnerships are "place-based" and focused on informing both practice and research. Our studies are co-designed and collaborative at every step in the process.


Center for Community Based and Applied Health Research (CCBAHR)

The Center for Community-Based and Applied Health Research (CCBAHR) fosters research collaborations among interdisciplinary UTSA research faculty and community partners including, but not limited to health care agencies, community-based organizations, schools, and faith-based organizations. In this endeavor, the Center provides an opportunity to integrate biomedical knowledge, technology, human resources, education, and policies needed for the maintenance and improvement of health, including fighting disease and adverse effects of aging.
