Students are back on campus for school year 2017 - 18!
IN! is thrilled to announce that thirty-five students with intellectual disabilities were on campus for the 2017-2018 school year, taking college classes and participating in campus life. 2017/18 began the second year of the "Inclusive Higher Education Pilot Initiative" at Arapahoe Community College, the University of Northern Colorado, and the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. The students had a busy couple of weeks engaging in many of the campus activities and acclimating to their new schedules, classes, and friends. Some of the students lived on campus in dorms or apartments. While the first year students got adjusted to college, the second-year students began to explore career related internships. All the students received additional academic and social support through person-centered planning and peer monitors. The support systems encourage the students to participate in campus activities and become active, contributing members of their school.
