CORE

What is CORE?

The purpose of the Collaboration Of Rehabilitation and Education (CORE) group is to share information as professionals about each other’s program to enhance collaboration and resources available to individuals with disabilities. This collaborative forum promotes the exchange of information on rehabilitation, education, and issues of common concern. The CORE group may examine policy issues and process improvements to further the goals of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). The CORE Group consists of University and Community College representatives from each region, Vocational Rehabilitation (VR), and Oregon Commission for the Blind (OCB). On an annual basis, the representatives appointed to the CORE Group will determine the schedule and format of these meetings, considering large group, regional, and virtual opportunities as appropriate to ensure stakeholder involvement.
