In April, the Midwest Inclusive Post-Secondary Alliance (MIPSA) had its first organizing meeting at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. Seventy stakeholders committed to the development and improvement of postsecondary education options for students with intellectual disability from throughout the Midwest came together to discuss ways to enhance and expand postsecondary opportunities for students with intellectual disability. The attendees brought both insight and candor to our discussions. Our own Clare Papay presented on inclusive housing, and participated in the broader discussion as well. Clare’s presentation can be accessed here. The group will continue to work together to establish by-laws and a board of directors.
Midwest Inclusive Post-Secondary Alliance promotes access to quality inclusive postsecondary education for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the Midwest through a shared focus on collaboration through program development, research, and public policy.
