Student Organizations

The two major on-campus student organizations for students enrolled in the B.S. Vocational Rehabilitation program are the Vocational Rehabilitation Club and the Student Council for Exceptional Children Club (SCECC). Both are organized and administered by students with a faculty advisor. Both organizations provide opportunities for direct contact with people who have disabilities.

The Vocational Rehabilitation Club primarily emphasizes involvement with and advocacy for adults with disabilities while the SCECC is primarily involved with youth with disabilities. For example, the Vocational Rehabilitation Club Sponsors "Disability Awareness Week," an annual campus event dedicated to increasing student and faculty appreciation of differences. The SCECC sponsors an annual bowling tournament for students enrolled in special education classes from the surrounding communities.

Benefits of becoming involved in either or both clubs include peer interaction, professional growth and development, valuable hands-on experiences and enhanced employment opportunities.
