Services & Programs

In addition to accommodations, ADS also offers various services and programs to current students.

Delta Alpha Pi Honor Society

Delta Alpha Pi (DAP) Honor Society recognizes college students with disabilities for their academic achievement and promotes a positive message regarding students with disabilities. The TU chapter of DAP, Alpha Epsilon, was founded in 2009 and is one of more than 120 chapters at colleges and universities nationwide. 

DAP is open to students with documented disabilities who demonstrate an interest in disability issues and meet specific academic requirements. Undergraduate students must have completed 24 credits with an overall GPA of 3.10. Graduate students must have completed 18 credits with an overall GPA of 3.30. 

DAP facilitates development of leadership and advocacy skills and provides opportunities for members to serve as mentors and role models. It also provides educational programming related to disability issues to the campus community. 

DAP is an academic year long program with opportunities to take part in programs and services beginning in the Fall and an induction ceremony at the end of the Spring semester.

Workforce Development Program

The Accessibility and Disability Services ‘Workforce Development Program’ (WDP) facilitates work readiness and employment-related skill development for students registered with ADS. WDP provides support through workshops, events, campus partnerships, and referrals. WDP collaborates with the TU Career Center to offer students one-on-one career counseling, self-assessment tests, and online resources to discover their career path, initiating a transition to employment upon graduation.  

Workforce Recruitment Program

WDP also sponsors the federal Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP), a recruitment and referral program that connects federal employers with college students and recent graduates with disabilities seeking summer and permanent jobs. Students do not need to be registered with ADS but must be eligible for a Schedule A letter that certifies their disability for federal employment. ADS can assist students with obtaining this documentation from a qualified provider.

Peer Mentor Program 

The Accessibility and Disability Services Peer Mentoring Program is designed to pair incoming students with disabilities with returning TU students who have demonstrated leadership capability and been academically successful at TU. 

Mentors are trained to provide guidance and support to mentees as they become familiar with campus life and resources. By creating connections between new and more experienced students, the program helps personalize the university experience and create opportunities for rewarding personal relationships.
