Impact U is a residential program preparing students for employability in a career path while increasing independent living skills. Students will graduate in two years with a Certificate of Applied Learning and a resume of work experiences. Initially scaled for a class of up to ten, the program will focus on 18 to 26 year old students with a range of developmental disabilities including autism and intellectual disability.

With person-centered planning and support, students will live in the dorms and participate fully in campus life, while attending classes designed to expand general knowledge and promote the growth of thinking and problem solving skills. Students will gain work experience through on- and off-campus internships and paid jobs, participate in campus service projects, and also have the opportunity to audit select Concordia College classes.
