Gaining experience to complement your studies is a great way to explore your options and build skills for your career. Although having a disability can present additional barriers to gaining experience out of the classroom, its one of the most powerful things you can do to prepare to launch your career post-graduation. On-Campus, there is a wealth of possibilities to gain experience. The Experiential Education Unit and this helpful booklet listing on-campus opportunities are great places to explore some options. Off-campus, there is volunteering, part-time and summer work, as well as internships that any student can pursue. Consult the pages below for ideas and programs specifically for students with disabilities wanting to grow their skills and experience.
