The Northeast Resource Center for Vision Education (NERCVE) is committed to improving quality of life for people with visual impairments. We support UMass Boston's Vision Studies program, which is New England's only academic center for preparing Teachers of Students with Visual Impairment, Orientation and Mobility Specialists, Vision Rehabilitation Therapists, and Assistive Technology Instructional Specialists.

NERCVE is affiliated with the Institute for Community Inclusion at the University of Massachusetts Boston. The Vision Studies programs are administered through the UMass Boston School for Global Inclusion and Social Development.
