The Department of Administration, Rehabilitation, and Postsecondary Education has adopted a new program that will prepare students with disabilities to join the workforce after they receive a college degree. Titled “Bridging the Gap from College to Careers,” the new curriculum was developed by a UC Berkeley professor and has been turned into a three-unit class at the College of Education.
