New Initiative Launched for Students with Disabilities

December 3, 2007

The CUNY LEADS Project (Linking Employment Academics and Disability Services) will provide enhanced services and promote successful employment for CUNY students with disabilities. This ground-breaking project is the result of the recently signed Memorandum of Understanding between CUNY and VESID (Vocational & Educational Services for Individuals with Disabilities)—a model collaboration for universities and vocational rehabilitation systems nationally.
