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 Towson University 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 GPA requirements. 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. Interested in learning more about DAP? Visit Involved@TU or contact Kelly Rogan at krogan AT_TOWSON.
Disability Support Services participates in the federal Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP) which is a recruitment and referral program that connects federal employers with college students and recent graduates with disabilities who are seeking summer and permanent jobs. Each fall, DSS arranges for WRP recruiters to conduct personal interviews with eligible students who are interested in participating. After candidates are selected by the WRP, their interview information is compiled in a searchable database for federal agencies to use in recruitment and hiring. Students must be eligible for a Schedule A letter that certifies their disability for federal employment, and DSS can assist students with obtaining this documentation.
For more information, please contact the Towson University WRP coordinator, Jeannie Mauldin, at jmauldin AT_TOWSON.
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Towson University policies and procedures prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability.
Students who believe they have been discriminated against because of their disability, or who have a complaint regarding disability accommodations or services, should email the director of DSS, Susan Willemin at swillemin AT_TOWSON. The director will meet with the concerned individual as soon as practical in an attempt to resolve the complaint.
For additional information please review Towson University’s Policy on Prohibiting Discrimination, which includes procedures for making a complaint:
