On campus: Pioneering Inclusive Education
On Campus is an inclusive education initiative for persons with developmental disabilities at the University of Alberta. Now celebrating its 20th Anniversary, we pause to reflect on the implementation, structure, function and evolution of the program, the first of its kind globally. Increasing social change has led to more and more inclusive opportunities for persons with developmental disabilities, many of which were born due to the influence of the inclusive efforts of this initiative. From its inception to present, On Campus continues to challenge attitudes, stereotypes, perceptions and beliefs in regards to what might be possible for adults with developmental disabilities.
