The department is excited to announce that it has received two new federal training grants from the Department of Education! These grants will provide tuition remission and a stipend for selected master's students with the goal of enhancing professional training in Rehabilitation Counseling and Special Education.
The RSA (or Rehabilitation Services Administration) grant will increase the supply of qualified rehabilitation counselors to work for state Vocational Rehabilitation agencies and other affiliated programs.
Project EPIC (Evidence-based Practices and Interdisciplinary Collaboration) is a master's and teacher certification program that will enhance training for future Special Education teachers in creating inclusive educational experiences for students with significant disabilities, such as autism and intellectual disabilities.
