    Monitoring the Convention on Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) is important to ensure full participation of persons with disabilities in society.

    Employment Opportunities for College Graduates with Disabilities: A Step Forward
    (University of Hawaii at Manoa -- Center on Disability Studies, 2012) Barile, Maria ; Fichten, Catherine ; Havel, Alice ; Jorgensen, Shirley
    Since data show that students with disabilities graduate from college at the same rate as their nondisabled peers, it is time to examine employment of recent graduates. Here we report on a trend toward higher levels of employment for college graduates who were integrated into "regular" educational settings since the 1990s. To illustrate this phenomenon, we summarize our findings of a study on graduates with and without disabilities at three Canadian junior/community colleges.
