The REACH (Reaching Educational and Career Hopes) Program is housed within the University Accessibility Center to assist students with disabilities in making the transition from university life to the world of employment. This transition is an exciting process of career exploration and development, which should begin early in the educational process. REACH can help you:
- Understand disability employment rights
- Determine if and when to disclose your disability
- Learn strategies for requesting workplace accommodations
- Discover disability-friendly employers
- Get ready for job interviews
- Prepare professional documents (e.g., resumes, references, cover letters, thank-you notes)
- Engage with Career Services to obtain industry-specific advice
Students who are interested in furthering their career exploration are invited to contact the REACH Coordinator:
C. Tyler Briggs, MRC, CRC
Phone: (801) 422-2767
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org (you will receive responses in Y Message if you are a current BYU Provo student)
As a BYU student or recent alumnus who has registered for services from the University Accessibility Center, you will receive communications about employment preparation opportunities and resources from the REACH Coordinator. You may unsubscribe from these communications at any time by unsubscribing in the mail distribution platform.
Alumni Consultation Policy: Recent alumni with disabilities are welcome to have a limited number of appointments with the REACH Advocate up to one year after their respective graduation dates. Alumni with disabilities who have graduated more than one year before the current date may meet with the REACH Advocate one time to discuss referral options to community resources.
