The Nisonger Center was founded in 1966 as an interdisciplinary program of the Ohio State University. The United States Administration on Developmental Disabilities has designated Nisonger Center a "University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD)." Nisonger Center has the following four goals:
1. To provide high quality interdisciplinary university training programs to help meet the professional and research manpower needs of the MR/DD field.
2. To operate clinics and related services that demonstrate nationally important innovations or fill gaps in services available in Central Ohio.
3. To provide consultation and other technical assistance to government agencies, non-profit organizations, and consumer advocacy groups.
4. To expand knowledge on developmental disabilities by engaging in world-class scientific research.
