Services for Students with Disabilities

Greetings Students-

Welcome back to campus! We are looking forward to kicking off the Fall Semester with you all!

The University Career Center (UCC) offers many opportunities for you to learn about various internships and jobs, and many take place early in the Fall semester and we want to help you connect the dots. During upcoming events, You can engage with different employers and graduates schools to discuss opportunities for all majors.

Programs for Students with Disabilities

I wanted to let you know as the campus coordinator for Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP) the online application system is live.

If WRP is new for you it is a federal government sponsored recruitment and referral program that connects college students and recent graduates with disabilities to paid summer internships and full-time positions. I’m excited to work with you and look forward to building a positive relationship. 

I wanted to send you information about The Workforce Recruitment Program because it is a great opportunity for students with disabilities. Since we either collaborate quite often and/or are both involved in programming initiatives over the semester I wanted to share the registration information for students.
