Speaking: Robert, Katie, Sherri, Dianne, Linda

College is increasingly a reality for students with intellectual disabilities and post-secondary education programs are GROWING in Pennsylvania. Participants will learn about Pennsylvania’s six inclusive programs: Arcadia University, Drexel University, Mercyhurst University OASIS Program, Penn State-Harrisburg, Slippery Rock University, and West Chester University. Each panelist will outline their program with information on admission requirements, the role of peer mentors, academic supports for students, residential living, developing a path to competitive employment, and tuition. The DREAM Partnership will also provide a brief update on emerging programs in Pennsylvania.
