Inclusive Concurrent Enrollment Initiative (ICEI)

ICEI Students on Boyden steps

The ICEI program at Bridgewater State University is a fully-inclusive postsecondary program for young adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities. Students in the BSU ICEI program share the same experiences as their college-aged peers in the areas of academics, socialization, career development, and independent living. With supports in place, our ICEI students enroll in courses, take part in campus internships, and socialize with peers. This effort at Bridgewater State University has been tremendously successful; students have become more independent and actively engaged in creating and living their lives. Our program honors their dignity and worth, and fosters self-determination.
