Assessing Risk and Developing Strategies for Inclusive Postsecondary Education Programs

As Inclusive Postsecondary Education (IPSE) programs are discussed at institutions of higher education, administrators often bring concerns to the table regarding safety of the students with ID/DD. Sometimes these concerns are related to lack of knowledge of the population, but having a plan for the safety and security of students using on-campus support systems can be helpful. This session will discuss the importance of collaboration between IPSE program staff and the Risk Management Office, as well as key strategies for risk management and prevention.
