My College Life: Students with Intellectual Disability Share Their Lived Experiences

Students with intellectual disability are increasingly identifying college as a goal, but far too few have actually had the option. It’s been nearly 20 years since the first inclusive college programs began and still, just 2% of school-age students with intellectual disability are attending college. It’s time to change that! The “Think Higher. Think College.” Public Awareness campaign was created to educate and inform families, students, teachers, school administrators, transition and vocational rehabilitation professionals, and higher education faculty and staff about what’s possible for students with intellectual disability. 

This is an event sponsored by AUCD's Community Education and Dissemination Council and the Postsecondary Education Special Interest Group.

At this webinar, attendees can expect to:

  • Hear from a panel of college students about their experiences
  • Watch the “Think Higher. Think College.” Campaign video
  • Get access to new resources for students, families, and educators, plus campaign tools to spread the word about college access for students with intellectual disability
