Why We’re Focused on Serving Students, Not Selling to Them

Recently, we’ve met a lot of families and professionals who weren’t aware of the different inclusive academic services available in the state of Colorado. They’ve heard from other groups that there are only three college campuses in Colorado that provide these inclusive services to students with disabilities. We’veheard that, too. Here’s why that’s wrong, and what’s really going on in the inclusive college movement.

5 Inclusive College Programs in Colorado You Should Know About

Our main passion at IHECP is giving students access to inclusive higher education services and resources they wouldn’t normally have —including information on other college programs that could benefit them. While we provide inclusive services and support for all three colleges at the Auraria Campus in Denver, we believe that we have a duty to share all the inclusive education resources available to students with disabilities. We want to make sure students and families know their options so they can choose the program that best fits their individual needs.

5 Things We’ve Accomplished in the Past 5 Years

At IHECP, we’re dedicated to raising expectations of what students with disabilities can accomplish. Not just in a higher education setting, but as members of our community. Our team has extensively researched other established and successful programs across the U.S. and Canada to create a hybrid program that has become the first truly inclusive college program in the state of Colorado.

5 Ways To Look For An Inclusive College

The transition to college is a big milestone, but for students with disabilities the additional stress of finding a college with inclusive services that fit their needs can be overwhelming. Looking for the right inclusive college is a journey, and IHECP is devoted to helping students on this journey by giving them the resources they need to choose the school that will best serve them. There are a few questions that students and families can ask themselves when deciding which inclusive college is the right fit.
