Students with Disabilities

The Center for Careers and Employment offers its services to all students equally but has developed additional services that are aimed at providing services that are of particular value to those students and alumni who have disabilities.

Our office is located in the Siek Campus Center, Room 201, and is accessible via an elevator at the north end of the building. Disabled parking is available in front and at the rear of the building. The main doors to the building are power assisted.

If any of this office's materials or resources are found not to be accessible, please let us know and we will make every effort to accommodate.

Counseling is available on: resume development; interviewing; disclosure; reasonable accommodations; and many other issues relevant to disabilities.
