The primary goals of the rehabilitation counselor are to empower individuals with disabilities to achieve their goals in life by assisting them to identify their strengths and weaknesses, build on their assets, enhance their abilities, and positively alter the environments in which they function.
The mission of the Rehabilitation Counseling graduate program is to provide the full array of a sequenced and integrated course of professional study that prepares graduates with the needed knowledge, competencies, values and professional identity to provide individuals with significant disabilities with the assistance and opportunities that they need to achieve high quality employment and independence in their communities.
As a whole, our students are heavily recruited by agencies within and outside of the region. Many students have job offers prior to graduation and virtually all of our students find employment shortly after graduation. Many of our graduates have become leading figures in human services management in New England.
