Hilbert’s rehabilitation services degree program is one of the newest offerings at Hilbert and the only program of its kind in Western New York. It is the only bachelor degree of its kind in Western New York and one of approximately 25 throughout the United States. We invite you to consider joining one of the fastest growing helping professions in the country! 

The rehabilitation services degree program at Hilbert was created to address the unique service needs of persons with disabilities. Our program provides you a unique, marketable and community-responsive academic program of study in supporting and assisting those with disabilities in achieving their desired level of independent living, employment and community integration.

In April, 2009 the Rehabilitation Services program was approved by the Council on Rehabilitation Education's Commission on Undergraduate Education at the CORE Annual Meeting for inclusion in the Undergraduate Registry. This Registry is the only formal recognition available for undergraduate programs in Rehabilitation and Disability Studies and Hilbert's program met the stringent standards of the registry.
