SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The state Board of Regents has been approached with the request to change the name of the REACH [Realizing Educational and Career Hopes] program to the UI REACH program at its meeting on Wednesday.

The REACH program is a two-year transition certificate program for students with multiple intellectual and cognitive learning disabilities that is operated by the UI College of Education, and was approved by the board originally in February of 2008.

Provost Barry Butler requested the name change to help “identify uniqueness.”

There is at least one other program located in South Carolina that has taken the name of REACH, Butler said.

He also said there was no cost associated with the change.

The regents moved for the request’s approval, which will be discussed at the meeting today.
