Professor receives $1.5 million from U.S. Department of Education

Randall Parker, the Melissa Elizabeth Stuart Centennial Professor in Education in the College of Education, has been awarded $1.5 million from the Rehabilitation Services Administration in the U.S. Department of Education. The two grants will help to support graduate students in the College of Education's rehabilitation counseling program. The grants are in effect from September 2009 through August 2014 and complement a $500,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The $500,000 grant is helping master's degree rehabilitation counseling specialists who will work with blind individuals.
