The research consortium dedicated to vocational rehabilitation focuses on workforce readiness, employer practices and transition services for young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

With more than $13 million in funding from the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR), we have led three national Rehabilitation and Research Training Centers on the employment of individuals with disabilities.

Future goals include building partnerships among academia, industries and the Department of Defense on employing individuals with disabilities.
