Students are back on campus!

Students are back on campus for the school year! 

IN! is thrilled to announce that forty-eight students with intellectual disabilities are on campus for the 2018-2019 school year, taking college classes and participating in campus life.  2018/19 begins the third 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 students are living on campus in dorms or apartments. While the first year students get adjusted to college, the second-year students will began to explore career related internships, and the third-year students will continue their studies and career pursuits. All the students receive 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. 

Moving into residence halls!
