Recognizing the importance of technology in the workplace, the University of New Orleans began offering computer training in 1984 to public sector employees. Our staff continues to provide computer training so that individuals stay current with the latest business productivity software and increase their efficiency on the job.

In 1986, Oliver St. Pé established the Training and Resource Center for the Blind. The Center provides quality services to persons with disabilities, rehabilitation professionals, educators and employers.

UNO TRAC has built a solid reputation for its innovative training programs and community outreach efforts. The Center is recognized as a valuable resource statewide, nationally and internationally on disability issues.

TRAC's mission to improve the quality of life for individuals with disabilities is accomplished through services including vocational and assistive technology assessments, assistive technology /computer training, and community outreach. TRAC houses a variety of assistive technology to address the needs of individuals experiencing visual, hearing, physical, or learning challenges.

In 1996, the Center opened the doors of a dedicated facility on the Lakefront Campus, the Oliver St. Pe Center. The department name was changed to the Training, Resource and Assistive-technology Center (TRAC) to reflect expanding services.

The Oliver St. Pe Center houses our training and evaluation labs and administrative offices. The facility also houses a conference center, lodging, and computer labs available for rent.
