The National Leadership Consortium in Sensory Disabilities (NLCSD)


Our Mission:  

The National Leadership Consortium in Sensory Disabilities (NLCSD) is a Collaborative Agreement awarded to Salus University and funded by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs.

NLCSD’s primary purpose is to increase the number of highly skilled doctoral scholars who will become leaders in administration, higher education, policy and education in order to significantly improve the interventions, services, and outcomes for children with sensory disabilities (deafness/hard of hearing, deafblindness, blindness/visual impairment), ages birth to 21.

NLCSD consists of two cohorts of scholars. The first cohort begins their studies in the Fall of 2015. Applications for the second cohort are due March 1, 2016 for a Fall 2016 start date.
