The Career Center recognizes, respects, and aims to integrate students' diverse backgrounds, identities, and abilities 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 (DSS) for more information regarding disclosure and accommodations.
In addition to the resources below, career counselors/advisors are available to answer questions and provide guidance.
Disability Support Services (DSS) at Towson University provides accommodations and services to students with various disabilities and some temporary impairments that substantially limit one or more major life activities. The DSS staff is available to answer questions concerning accommodations and services as well as to provide information about other resources on and off campus.
Every fall the DSS office, in collaboration with the Career Center, hosts the Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP) at Towson University. WRP is a federal recruitment and referral program that connects public and private sector employers with college students and recent graduates with disabilities who are seeking summer and permanent jobs. WRP recruiters conduct interviews with applicants who wish to be entered into the WRP employment database. After applicants are selected, the database is opened to all employers registered with WRP nationwide. Both federal employers and private companies hire candidates from the database throughout the following year for positions across the United States and abroad. For more information, contact the Towson University WRP coordinator, Jeannie Mauldin, at jmauldin AT_TOWSON.
