Welcome

Welcome to Rehabilitation Services at UMF

“I seldom think about my limitations, and they never make me sad. Perhaps there is just a touch of yearning at times; but it is vague, like a breeze among flowers.”

-Helen Keller


Want to make a difference?

Our students and graduates make a difference in the lives of others every single day. Whether a person struggling with addiction, a child recently diagnosed with disability, or a person living with depression or another psychiatric diagnosis, our students leave our program with the skills to help people navigate the supports and services they may need to live their lives more fully.

This is precisely why most of our students are offered employment because they have real-world skills and knowledge, in part due to practicum and internship experiences, and in part due to professors who have worked in various fields related to Rehabilitation Services.

So join us! Reach out to our faculty to talk about our great program or better yet, join us on campus for a visit! We look forward to seeing you!

Faculty serve as liasons to the field of rehabilitation, and they continue to provide encouragement, support, and mentoring. I have obtained employment as a supervisor in a major behavioral health network in Tuscon, AZ.”
