BPDD RFP for WI Think College Expansion
Deadline to submit proposals: Nov. 26, 2012
Students with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD), many of whom are the first generation to experience full school inclusion, increasingly look toward post-secondary options as they approach high school graduation. Like their peers without disabilities, they see college as the next logical step toward career-readiness and a meaningful adult life.
While post-secondary institutions in Wisconsin have shown an interest in developing supports and inclusive programs for students with I/DD, relatively few are offered. Of those that are available, demand far outweighs the ability to provide high-quality, inclusive post-secondary options.
BPDD is requesting proposals to expand the Think College Inclusive Postsecondary Education program in Wisconsin.
