SUCCEED is a postsecondary education program for students ages 18-25 with intellectual and developmental disabilities  at the University of Missouri- St. Louis (UMSL) that provides inclusive opportunities in academic, social, residential, and vocational settings. Participants engage in ongoing person-centered planning, receive individualized supports and services for academic and social inclusion, and participate in academic, vocational, and social enrichment experiences that are foundational to gainful employment and independent living in the community upon graduation. Program outcomes focus on the acquisition of independent living skills, self-advocacy skills, self-determination, community engagement, and social skill development. Upon the successful completion of the program, students in the SUCCEED program are awarded a  Chancellor’s Certificate during UMSL’s spring Commencement. Following commencement, SUCCEED graduates either matriculate into a degree program or move into competitive employment.
