Established in 1990, the CHIME Institute, a nonprofit organization, is a national leader in developing and implementing model educational programs and dynamic research and training environments to disseminate best practices in inclusive education. It currently oversees an Infant/Toddler program, a Preschool and a Charter school. The Institute’s research and training center is housed in California State University Northridge’s Michael D. Eisner College of Education.

CHIME also serves as a model for educators through its partnerships with the Eisner College and the Los Angeles Unified School District. It facilitates research opportunities and regularly hosts visitors from around the U.S. and the world.

The institute has been recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a model for full inclusion of students with disabilities and for providing a blueprint for local schools across the country.

Proceeds from the event will go toward supporting the educational programs.
