Resources for Students with Disabilities

The Career Center is committed to providing a welcoming, inclusive, and supportive learning environment for all students. We recognize, respect, and integrate students’ diverse backgrounds, identities, experiences, and perspectives into quality career development and planning. Our events, resources, and opportunities are designed to ensure that all students have equal access, including students with disabilities.

Students with disabilities can have unique challenges when choosing a major or career, interviewing for positions, and transitioning into the work world. Challenges can include if, when and how to disclose a disability and request reasonable accommodations for an internship or employment. Students with disabilities are encouraged to contact Disability Support Services for more information regarding disclosure and accommodations.

In addition to the resources below, career counselors/advisors are available to answer questions and provide guidance.

Additional Resources on Campus

Disability Support Services (DSS) is the office on campus that works with registered students with disabilities including learning disabilities, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, mental health disabilities, autism, brain injuries, physical/mobility and medical disabilities, as well as vision and hearing impairments. DSS works individually with each student to determine reasonable accommodations based on documentation and personal interview.

Every fall the DSS office, in collaboration with the Career Center, hosts the federal Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP) at Towson University. The WRP is a recruitment and referral program that connects federal and private sector employers with college students and recent graduates with disabilities who are interested in obtaining summer or permanent employment. A federal WRP recruiter conducts personal interviews with interested students with disabilities at the DSS office. Information from these candidate interviews is then compiled in a searchable database for employers through WRP. Interested students should contact Disability Support Services.
