Welcome to the Think College Student Credentials Affinity Group!

The Student Credentials Affinity group brings together professionals, researchers, advocates, policymakers and educators interested in discussing the credential landscape in postsecondary education. This is an open-access special interest group targeted at individuals who want to contribute to the discussion of “meaningful credentials” for students with intellectual disabilities.

The purpose of the Affinity Group is to:

  • Facilitate dialogue on the credential landscape in inclusive higher education
  • Connect with others
  • Share tools and resources

Through a series of quarterly online meetings, this affinity group will consider the points of view of several key stakeholders:

  • Students with Intellectual Disability
  • Businesses / Employers
  • TPSID Programs
  • Institutes of Higher Education

Next Meeting

The next Student Credentials Affinity Group meeting will be held on Thursday, May 9th, at noon (Eastern).

The meeting agenda and connection information can be found here
