EGTI alumni receive an 8 and 18-month follow-up survey to track employment outcomes. Data from the most recent 8-month survey reflects 78% of the graduates have secured employment.
EGTI staff continue to strive for 100% employment!
EGTI's Career Sampling Sessions continue to reach capacity. This is great; however, it means many individuals do not get their preferred date.
There are four more in 2018, but one of these is already full. We encourage those interested to check the available dates, and register ASAP.

September 1, nationally recognized activist Richard Propes headed out on his 29th Annual Tenderness Tour. Propes, a paraplegic/double amputee born with spina bifida, started the Tenderness Tour in 1989 with a 41-day, 1086 mile wheelchair ride around the State of Indiana.
100% of the proceeds from the 2018 Tenderness Tour will go to establish the Tenderness Award, a $500 annual scholarship to an EGTI student. The scholarship will be awarded annually to a student with a physical disability.
