Brown (Early Childhood, Multilingual, and Special Education) has been awarded a grant totaling more than $1 million by the U.S. Department of Education to support special education and social work master's students. The project is titled Pedagogues Readily Addressing Interdisciplinary Special Education Requirements (Project PRAISER) and is designed to bring social work and special education majors together in their training so that they can better support students with emotional and behavioral disorders in school settings.

Brown will be working with faculty in the College of Urban Affairs — Kathleen Bergquist from social work and professor Gillian Pinchevsky in criminal justice.
