Embracing Dignity of Risk in Inclusive Postsecondary Education Programs

College students in general have an immense amount of freedom to take emotional, physical, and intellectual risks. Presenters discussed the access to Dignity of Risk that students with intellectual disability should have when in college. The presenters advocated for increased dignity of risk, a model of dignity of risk in IPSE programming, and five principles that might guide programs as they consider and assess risk.
