Arizona Inclusive Education
The Supporting Inclusive Practices in Colleges Program (SIP-C) is a US Department of Education grant-funded program with the mission to advise, support, and empower individuals with intellectual disabilities to participate and thrive in higher education experiences. We work closely with local college campuses in Northern Arizona through dedicated campus coordinators who assist participants and their families to “set the bar high” for success. SIP-C supports individuals between the ages of 18-26 who are seeking an advanced degree, in any field (see READ MORE below).

Our team engages directly with participants to foster an atmosphere of inclusion. Educational coaches and peer mentors assist participants at every stage beginning with enrolling in and funding college, pursuing appropriate and necessary on-campus services and resources, and transitioning from college to gainful employment.
SIP-C’s goal is to foster an atmosphere of inclusion, as such, support is discretely delivered to participants by program staff. There are no separate classes, workshops, or activities for project participants. We partner with on-campus resources, such as Student Affairs, to obtain current information about changes impacting students or to seek advice on matters specific to participants desires or concerns. If you, or someone you know would like to schedule an advising meeting with a campus coordinator in your area, please fill out the SIP-C interest form.
