TigerLIFE (Learning Independence, Fostering Employment & Education)

The university of Memphis TigerLIFE Postsecondary Education Program is a 60 hour program culminating in a completion award in Career and Community Studies.  Participation in the TigerLIFE program provides students with an option for continuing their education beyond high school to increase employment opportunities.  

The program provides individualized Programs of Study in the areas of academic, social, vocational and independent living skills for students ages 18-29 with intellectual disabilities.  At the heart of TigerLIFE is a person-centered planning model that uses the Systems Approach to Placement (an assessment instrument to develop a specialized program that best fits the unique skills, abilities, and needs of each student admitted into the program).  

The TigerLIFE program is administered by the University of Memphis Institute on Disability (UMID) whose purpose is to assist people with physical and developmental disabilities in finding meaningful and lasting employment, and serves as a community rehabilitation provider (CRP) for mid-south regional area vocational rehabilitation departments in Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee.  TigerLIFE is a federally recognized Comprehensive Transition Program.
