UA to Develop Pilot Program to Support Disabled Veterans
Thanks to the efforts of Rep. Raúl Grijalva, the Disability Resource Center (DRC) at The University of Arizona has secured funding to develop a new pilot program that will provide disabled veterans returning from combat with the resources they need to successfully complete a college degree.
The goal of the project is the successful reintegration of disabled veterans returning from the Middle East, their completion of a college degree and successful job acquisition.
Today, Rep. Grijalva toured the DRC, met with its staff and spoke with students using the facility.
Each year, more than 1,700 disabled members of the UA community utilize the services provided by the DRC.
