Consortium for Postsecondary Education for Individuals with Developmental Disabilities

The Institute for Community Inclusion at the University of Massachusetts, Boston, in collaboration with the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa–Center on Disability Studies, six other University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (Delaware, Minnesota, South Carolina, Tennessee [Vanderbilt], Ohio, California), and the Association of University Centers on Disabilities, has established the Consortium for Postsecondary Education for Individuals with Developmental Disabilities. The Consortium conducts research, provides training and technical assistance, and disseminates information on promising practices that support individuals with developmental disabilities to increase their independence, productivity and inclusion through access to postsecondary education resulting in improved long-term independent living and employment outcomes. The Consortium is a national resource for knowledge, training, materials, and dissemination regarding the participation of individuals with developmental disabilities in postsecondary education.
