Ensuring Success for Veterans with Disabilities in STEM Degree Programs: Recommendations from a Workshop and Case Study of an Evidence-Based Transition Program
Goldberg, Mary; Cooper, Rory; Milleville, Maria; Barry, Anne; Schein, Michelle L.
Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, v16 n1 p16-24 Jan-Apr 2015
This article describes a workshop with academic professionals and military leaders and includes the case study of a veterans' transition program that served as a resource for identifying best practices for programs for Veterans with Disabilities in STEM Degree Programs. The information collected during this workshop, along with the theoretical framework, led to the Experiential Learning for Veterans in Assistive Technology and Engineering (ELeVATE) program, an intensive academic transition program, offered through the Department of Rehabilitation Science and Technology (RST) at the University of Pittsburgh. Some preliminary conclusions and recommendations are made for future programs.
