Iowa Vocational Rehabilitation Services works with individuals with disabilities who want to become employed. Receiving an education at UNI is one important factor in securing employment.
The Vocational Rehabilitation office at UNI is located in Gilchrist Hall with Career Services and Academic Advising. More than 200 students access vocational rehabilition each year at the UNI office which is under the leadership of Chris Crews-Larsen. The UNI office has the second highest success rate in helping students gain employment in the state for the past year.
