Goal of PBUCE

The goal of the PBUCE is to strengthen governance within and across sites (Northern Marianas College and American Samoa Community College) through regional and national partnerships, while building local capacity for interdisciplinary preservice and community outreach training to include consumers and family members.

Both sites work to provide service based on demonstrated culturally competent practices in order to support individuals with disabilities who are unserved and underserved at PBUCE sites and across the region. The aim is to provide people with disabilities access supports and services that will increase community inclusion.
