(WLNS) – An international program has made its way to Michigan State University, incorporating internships through universities and businesses, for students with learning disabilities.
The program launched last week at MSU and is giving ten students the opportunity to work for different colleges and residence halls on campus, in the hopes of the internships opening doors for careers for the individuals.
Ingham ISD started working with the national project SEARCH three years ago, and told Michigan State staff they had less than a year to work with the school, and find the students who could apply for the program, to implement it.
Todays ceremony featured MSU President Lou Anna K. Simon and Michigan Lt. Governor Brian Calley, as well as a thank you for all of the departments who interviewed, hired and now work with the ten students.
