Students with Disabilities

Over the years, CaPS has worked in collaboration with the Office for Students with Disabilities (OSD) to offer a wide variety of services with regard to career exploration and job search strategies.

We continue to hold panel discussions with employers and employees with disabilities from a variety of industries. These are excellent opportunities to talk to professionals about their career paths and job opportunities. We also regularly participate in discussion groups held by the OSD on various job search topics.

CaPS has a designated advisor for students with disabilities. If you have any questions related to career exploration, job search strategies or have a specific question such as, “when and how should I disclose my disability?”, please make an appointment with the Diversity Advisor, Cindy Mancuso, by calling 514-398-3304.
