Partnership to Promote Employment of Individuals with Disabilities throughout the Higher Education Community
May 1, 2013
The Department's Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) and the Higher Education Recruitment Consortium Sign Agreement to Promote Employment of Individuals with Disabilities throughout the Higher Education Community. The two organizations are combining their expertise to increase recruitment, hiring, retention and advancement at colleges, universities, hospitals, research labs, government agencies and related organizations.
This alliance is an outgrowth of last year's Higher Education Sector Summit held by ODEP in conjunction with the College and University Professional Association - Human Resources. Summit panelists and participants explored the reasons that people with disabilities are underrepresented among the faculty and staff of institutions of higher learning.
