Students enrolled in IHECP programs get to experience college life as any student does: by attending classes, completing homework, socializing with peers, and exploring campus. Those with learning, intellectual, or developmental disabilities may actually benefit more from these experiences than other students, as they:
- Promote self-sufficiency
- Prepare students for higher level employment
- Help students adapt to new environments
- Widen social circles
- Increase confidence in their own abilities
For many of our students, IHECP programs have enabled them to learn in a higher education setting that, without this support, they may have been excluded from in the past.
Our university student services are designed to provide individualized supports for students with learning, intellectual, and developmental disabilities.
Events and open houses help the IHECP raise awareness about our student support services available on the downtown Denver Auraria Campus. Join us at one of our on-campus open houses or student activities.
