DO-IT Goes Co-op

Sheryl Burgstahler, Ph.D.

DO-IT is pleased to announce its newest grant. The U.S. Department of Education has funded a three-year project to increase the representation of students with disabilities in college-level cooperative education, internship, and other academic-relevant work experiences. Project efforts will increase opportunities for students with disabilities to build and attain workplace skills and job experiences that will lead to greater career success. We are pleased to welcome Julie Smallman to the staff to coordinate this project. She will be working with postsecondary students, staff, and faculty throughout the state of Washington and developing materials that will be distributed nationwide. We thank the U.S. Department of Education for funding this worthwhile effort.
