University of Arkansas CURRENTS
We support and participate in communities of practice and topical networks, connecting people for learning, innovation and continuous improvement.
stands for e-community of Leaders and Managers Online. It is an online community of practice for rehabilitation and related professionals. Through eLMO, we offer a selection of self-directed learning options for management development, anchored by a virtual meeting place for the community of leaders and managers in state agencies, education programs and non-profits. eLMO is also a website that functions as a network hub for members of the on-line community. It will serve as a virtual “Coffee House”, linking current managers with future leaders and experienced mentors.
Regional Vocational Rehabilitation-Business (ReVRB) Partnership
Each state VR agency in the Mid-South has a single point of contact to CSAVR’s National Employment Team (NET). These professionals are the agencies’ links to their state networks that manage business relations and corporate accounts. The members of the ReVRB Partnership also connect with other NET points of contact across the country. This regional community shares resources and information, meeting on a regular basis with support from the TACE grant.
RSA Technical Assistance Centers and Demonstration Projects
The Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) is committed to providing leadership and resources to grantees and stakeholders for the purpose of improving services to individuals with disabilities to maximize their employment, independence and integration into the community and the competitive labor market. Accordingly, RSA announces a series of training and technical assistance centers (TACs) and demonstration projects to assist state vocational rehabilitation (VR) agencies and their partners in providing VR and other services to individuals with disabilities. Each TAC focuses its efforts on a specific set of topics designed to provide universal, targeted, and intensive technical assistance (TA).
Specific information about each TAC, how to receive TA services, latest projects and communities of practice can be obtained by visiting the individual TAC websites. Details about each grant and the TA continuum of services are on the RSA homepage:
