About this Program
The Community Social Services program is designed to prepare students to become Direct Service Providers or Designated Coordinators in settings where vulnerable or at-risk people are housed or treated. Direct service providers are the caregivers in these settings, and the designated coordinators oversee the daily activities of the setting. The program exposes students to the laws, rules, and regulations surrounding the care and treatment of vulnerable people, specifically developmentally and cognitively disabled people. Additionally, the program trains students how to best support developmentally disabled people, as well as to understand the psychological characteristics of and treatments for various developmental and cognitive disabilities.
