         Faculty/Staff Guide: Credits

This document was initially produced in print in 1998 by Montgomery College Disability Support Services (DSS) through Project JOBTRAC, a federally funded three-year grant to increase faculty and staff awareness about the needs of students with disabilities. Montgomery College collaborated with TransCen, Inc., a local community organization with proven expertise in employment innovations for people with disabilities, as well as disability awareness and accommodation training. Project JOBTRAC was funded from 1995 to 1998 through a grant from the Department of Education, Office of Special Education and Rehabilitation Services, #H078C40046-95.

Since its original publication, the text has been modified for internet use and is enhanced with new ideas as the inspiration arises.
