Project WOLVES (World of Opportunities for Learning, Volunteering, Employment, and Socializing) is a 2-year non-degree conferring inclusive postsecondary education program (IPSE). Project WOLVES is designed to provide students with intellectual or developmental disabilities, ages 18 and older, with an inclusive postsecondary college education experience.
Project WOLVES focuses on developing academic, social, and personal skills that will lead to employment. Each student in Project WOLVES will work with an academic advisor to develop a personalized postsecondary program of study.
Admissions Requirements for Project WOLVES:
Project WOLVES is for unique learners who are highly motivated individuals who have a developmental or intellectual disability. The American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities defines an intellectual disability as a disability characterized by significant limitations in both intellectual functioning and in adaptive behavior, which covers many everyday social and practical skills. This disability originates before the age of 18. Although, potential students be diagnosed with other disabilities (e.g., autism), our emphasis is on students who also have cognitive impairments. We serve students with disabilities who have successfully completed high school and have a high school diploma (regardless of the type of diploma).
Students must meet the following minimal requirements prior to starting Project WOLVES:
