Giving hope back to disabled veterans

For most people, Veterans' Day means a day off from work or school. But for more than 26 million veterans--two million who have disabilities--November 11 is a day for reflection and often for those with disabilities, a day of concern about what the future holds.

Kent State University, in partnership with the Louis Stokes Cleveland Department of Veteran Affairs Medical Center, has created a program that offers veterans the opportunity to take control of their future by obtaining entirely online degrees suited to their educational, physical and mental needs.

Created by Dr. Joseph Drew, Kent State professor of political science, the program uses special software and adaptive equipment to allow veterans who are paraplegic or quadriplegic complete their coursework successfully, with the added convenience of working from their homes or the hospital. This helps these veterans with disabilities overcome multiple challenges they face in attaining a college education and future career.
