Resources for Fellow Institutions of Higher Education
Think College Vermont is an initiative of the Center on Disability and Community Inclusion (CDCI), within the College of Education and Social Services, at the University of Vermont (UVM). CDCI has been a leader in the area of inclusive education for people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities for over 30 years. As education and community inclusion for students with intellectual or developmental disabilities expands, so does the need for postsecondary education for this population.
We look forward to a future where students with intellectual disabilities have many college options in Vermont and the ability to pursue their interests and dreams. Our students are teaching us that they can be successful in academic classes alongside their peers without disabilities. Their successes demonstrate their commitment to learning and their dreams of becoming full members of their communities.
Please explore our website and visit our campus. We would love to hear more about other college programs for students with intellectual disabilities that exist in Vermont, or those beginning to join us in the pursuit of equal opportunities for individuals with intellectual and other developmental disabilities.
