The University of Cincinnati Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCCEDD) Diversity Fellowship utilizes community collaborations and experiential learning opportunities to improve outcomes for refugees with disabilities. In a partnership with the community organization Refugee Connect, UCCEDD�s Diversity Fellow provided direct case management to refugees in the Cincinnati area to connect them to disability-related supports. The fellowship also produced a toolkit to share lessons learned in supporting this population.
