Creating fully inclusive college opportunities in Colorado for students with intellectual disabilities to foster academic growth, social development, and career advancement.

Students with intellectual disabilities who successfully complete an inclusive, post-secondary education realize a competitive employment rate over 70%,
compared to less than 30% for similar adults with no post-secondary education.

IN!’s Vision

Students with intellectual disabilities will be welcomed on college campuses and allowed to continue their education and preparation for life, as inclusive pathways become part of the fabric of all colleges and universities throughout Colorado.

With your help we can make a difference.
 Learn more and get involved.
