Students to prep youth with disabilities for employment
By Julie Greco
In 2018, professors Kelly Clark and Thomas Golden of the Yang Tan Institute on Employment and Disability were named Faculty Fellows in Engaged Learning – earning stipends to enhance the institute’s mission of creating courses that take Cornell students out of the classroom to grapple with real-world issues.
With their funding, Clark and Golden developed a partnership with the Tompkins-Seneca-Tioga Board of Cooperative Educational Services (TST BOCES) to teach a new course, “It Takes Work: Innovations in Law and Practice to Advance Employment for Students with Disabilities.”
