Students with Disabilities

STUDENT COMMUNITY DESCRIPTION

Career Services is committed to supporting students and alumni with disabilities in navigating their career trajectory, as well as entering the workplace as their most authentic self.

Below, we have compiled a list of professional development resources, including mentoring and networking opportunities, professional associations, advocacy programs, leadership opportunities, internships, and inclusive employers. These resources will assist you with finding support as well as resources for your job and internship search. While the list is not exhaustive, it will help you get started. If you need further assistance, and would like to meet with someone, please feel free to schedule an appointment with a Career Counselor.

DEFINITIONS AND SELF-DISCLOSURE

To have a disability is often referred to as having a physical or mental impairment. There are three dimensions of disabilities: impairment, activity limitation, and participation restriction. CDC, Disability and Health Overview).

Students with disabilities offer the vast value to the work force: “Persons with disabilities present business and industry with unique opportunities in labor-force diversity and corporate culture, and they’re a large consumer market eager to know which businesses authentically support their goals and dreams. Leading companies are accelerating disability inclusion as the next frontier of corporate social responsibility and mission-driven investing” (U.S Department of Health and Human Services, 2020).

Please know that the Career Services office will in no way gain access to the identity of any students who use these resources. Disclosure is a personal choice and one that we respect and protect. These student affinity communities will provide any student, whether they choose to disclose or not, with access to information and opportunity. You are not legally required to disclose a disability.
