Disability Careers Office Highlighted as Nationwide Model

Almost half of college graduates with disabilities in the U.S. are unemployed. UT is tackling this problem through a one-of-a-kind partnership. The Disability Careers Office, established in 1999 as part of Career Services, links the resources from Career Services and the Office of Disability Services to assist students and alumni who have various disabilities to be competitive in their career search and connect to employers seeking a diverse workforce. The office is being presented as a model for other states at the National Governors Association institute to be held on May 10 in Pittsburgh and May 23 in Seattle.
