UNCG co-sponsored conference on hiring people with disabilities

UNCG’s Office of Research and Economic Development partnered with the North Carolina Business Leadership Network for a statewide conference focusing on helping businesses find, hire and retain people with disabilities. Kicking off the conference was Dr. Steve Roberson, dean of Undergraduate Studies, who spoke on the topic “Recruiting, Accommodating, Educating & Finding Employment for College Graduates with Disabilities.” Roberson highlighted UNCG’s Beyond Academics program, the first and only four-year, post-secondary transition certificate program for students with intellectual disabilities in the state.
