UCF’s Inclusive Education Services (IES) program provides an inclusive, comprehensive, non-degree-seeking college experience to adults with intellectual disabilities. During the two-year experience, students discover and develop their passions and strengths, enhancing their ability to facilitate long-term, paid and fulfilling employment after graduation.
Our program strives to deliver an immersive, innovative and distinctive collegiate experience. Students live on campus and engage with other UCF students at sporting events and student organizations, as well as complete internships in the community. The goal is to prepare students to secure employment after graduation.
IES is now part of the Toni Jennings Exceptional Education Institute in the College of Community Innovation and Education, an institute invested in research and scholarship for students and educators in exceptional student education.
