More Colleges Opening Doors To People With Developmental Disabilities

"Typically, the programs are four to five semesters in length, although more mature programs, like Vanderbilt’s Next Steps and George Mason University’s LIFE have expanded to four years. After completing the program, students are awarded a graduation certificate that officially recognizes their achievement. Some may transfer to a traditional baccalaureate program." >>https://www.forbes.com/sites/michaeltnietzel/2019/02/11/more-colleges-opening-doors-to-people-with-developmental-disabilities/#14b01007531

Students with developmental disabilities are gaining greater access to college. Not only do transition programs designed for these students prepare them for more successful, independent lives, they enable colleges to expand their notions of diversity and inclusion, benfiting institutions as a whole.

Annual Report + 2018

In 2018, George Mason University’s impact was greater than ever. We graduated the largest class in our history. We welcomed the largest, most diverse, and most academically prepared freshman class. We offered more pathways to a degree for students of all ages and backgrounds. Research output reached an all-time high. We culminated a record-setting capital campaign that far exceeded our goal. We continued or announced major expansions on all three Northern Virginia campuses. We exerted our role as a talent pipeline by attracting Amazon to move into our backyard. There is so much to celebrate. Read on to learn more about how Mason provided access to excellence in 2018. >>https://presidentsreport.gmu.edu/
