Career & Life Studies

Welcome to Career & Life Studies, a four-semester post secondary initiative for young adults with an intellectual disability who are interested in participating in an academic, vocational and social university experience. Career & Life Studies is the first residence hall based residential program in the state of PA. Each student receives person-centered planning through the creation of a PATH (Planning Alternative Tomorrows With Hope) to identify their vocational goal and establish an individual plan for employment. Students receive support from trained personnel, including coaches, mentors, faculty and staff. Career & Life Studies students become fully immersed in the Millersville campus community as an integral part of residential life. Our goal is to create inclusive communities where students feel connected, are involved in the university community and are academically, residentially and vocationally successful.
