The purpose of this publication is to inform eligible students with disabilities of their right to an accessible educational setting and to answer some anticipated questions about policies and procedures of Disability Services at Sinclair Community College.

Workforce Recruitment

Workforce Recruitment Program was developed to recruit individuals with a qualifying disability (or veterans) for Federal or Federal contracted positions. This is an ideal opportunity for students who are ready for an internship, within 1-2 semesters of graduation, or within 1 year after graduation. September 1 through October 12 is the active recruitment time with interviews in November.  For more information, review either of these documents and contact James Shuler (james.shuler@sinclair.edu or 937-512-2200).
