This webinar will focus on post-secondary inclusive education from the perspective of two implementation sites. Virginia Commonwealth University's ACE-IT in College is an inclusive, employment driven higher education program. Elizabeth Getzel's presentation will discuss how this program fits within the higher education student engagement movement, keys factors in developing a program to build university and community support, and ideas on sustaining inclusive programs in higher education.
Millersville University’s Integrated Studies is a four-year post secondary initiative for young adults with an intellectual disability who are interested in participating in an academic, vocational and social university experience with their typical peers. Ann Marie Licata and Jan Bechtel will focus on the inclusive nature of every aspect of the program, highlighting the successful residential component and how Millersville supports the Pennsylvania Inclusive Higher Education Consortium to develop more inclusive programs of this nature.
