Brief Description

In collaboration with Louisiana Rehabilitation Services, TRAC was established in 1986 by the late Oliver St. Pe’ as a Center to train people with visual impairments/blindness to use screen-reading software with standard business software (the Training and Resource Center for the Blind). Over the years, TRAC has responded to the needs of the community by expanding its services to serve people with other disabilities including individuals with learning, mobility, hearing, and cognitive disabilities. TRAC is housed in the Oliver St. Pe’ Center on the Lakefront Campus of the University of New Orleans.

TRAC's mission is to improve an individual's quality of life through education and services.
