Technology Peer Mentors

Learning how to use computers effectively is not always easy. Students who need a mentor to help them practice with tools and techniques should talk with their Disability Services counselor. We have Accessibility Aides who can help with individual or small group technology support in several key areas. Contact Disability Services to learn more.

Transition to Employment

Disability Services can help serve as a liaison between students and their academic programs when there are questions about accommodation in internships or certification exams. We also program a variety of opportunities for students to engage during National Disability Employment Awareness Month.
