Institute Brief 19
College students with disabilities enter with less work experience and have a harder time finding jobs than their nondisabled peers. Experiential education-- mentoring, internships, job shadowing, and so on-- can create a bridge to graduation and employment. However, that requires college professionals to consider access issues for all students. A new Institute Brief provides basic disability awareness information, suggests ways to create welcoming career offices, and offers ideas to increase access to experiential education.

This tip sheet is based on the experiences of students with disabilities in public schools and their families.
Information and suggestions for college career services offices to help them reach students who have disabilities.
