Idaho EPSCoR is committed to increasing the participation of students with disabilities in STEM fields. Resources for students, faculty, and staff are provided by Idaho EPSCoR through the Idaho STEM Pipeline program “DO-IT” (Disabilities, Opportunities, Internetworking, and Technology).
The “DO-IT” Center strives to increase the success of individuals with disabilities in challenging academic programs and careers. It promotes the use of technology to increase independence, productivity, and participation in education and employment. Since 1992, the Center has conducted many successful NSF projects including “AccessSTEM,” a program that works with representatives of stakeholders such as STEM projects and educators, postsecondary institutions, disability services, veteran associations, and career services.
DO-IT/AccessSTEM resources are available to help faculty, administrators, and staff create welcoming programs for students with disabilities and to help students with disabilities prepare for and succeed in college.
