The purpose of this group is to give an opportunity to existing and potential inclusive postsecondary education programs and partners to discuss how and why these statewide alliances are important, how to maintain them, and more. Anyone working on any type of formal or informal state-level connection, proposing systems change through alliances and consortia, or those who are simply curious about how these alliances can work, are welcome.
